My name is Frédéric Billard, I am an eco-beekeeper. I live in the heart of the Jura Natural Park.
I encourage you to discover my atypical production of pure Jura comb honey. It is insanely important to me to practice a natural and organic form of beekeeping, in order to be as close as possible to what bees do in nature. Attention and patience in addition to constancy are the qualities required of a good bee keeper. Order honeycomb now
Our traineeship but it's you who work!
Are you interested in an ethical approach to beekeeping?
Do not hesitate to come and learn my form of beekeeping in one of our traineeship. I do not aspire to revolutionize beekeeping, there are enough books and beekeepers that talk about modern beekeeping.
What do I want to convey as a message? It's simple:
Yes, it is possible to do it another way.
For what benefit?
- No use of chemical treatments
- Use of natural breeding instead of artificial breeding (it is the bees that decide the choice of royal cells)
- No supplementary feeding, except in case of famine and potential death of the colonies
- Working with the "jamb frame", which allows the bees to produce 100% natural fresh wax
- No use of industrial wax
- Use of natural products to fight against varroa
- Collaborating with our local "black bee" instead of imported bees
A different honey
The specificity, intensity and texture of comb honey
This makes all the difference between honey produced on a large scale and honey from a small producer who cares about the well-being of his bees by offering honey exclusively from the meadows, mountain pastures and forests of the Jura and Highlands of Jura. Read more
After having tried producing honey in a modern, traditional way,
using a centrifuge. I did not find the quality that I wanted while preserving my bees from the intensive exploitation that is made of them. After thinking and researching, I tested the "haussette" and its small wooden frames that you have to patiently make yourself,
But what was my surprise when,
one one hand, I saw my bees building with surprising speed the honey combs as the honeydew intensified and on the other hand, the double effect (kiss kool) of savoring my own honey for the first time.
I had this feeling of tasting a majestic honey, simple and complex at the same time. Sometimes with a variety of different lingering aromas, whether it is mountain honey or rather syrupy like linden comb honey with flavors that only nature is able to restore to us while preserving our local bee.Order sliced honeycomb now
Shipping your order
Not being a huge business, shipping costs have to be included in the total price.
Are taken into account in these costs: cardboard, wedging elements, time and travel it costs me to get to the nearest post office and to complete the pricing of colissimo.
From 0.1 to 5 kg, the shipping costs are identical and then calculated in blocks of 5 kg. I try to keep costs to a minimum. When you order an item at 10 €, the shipping costs are almost the same compared to an order for several items.
By trusting me with your orders, I guarantee you an authentic, quality product from the Jura. You thus allow me to accomplish my task of bee shepherd and to participate fully in the preservation of our local and native black bee. I thank you for the trust you have placed in me.
