Through the Ecomusée de l'abeille, Les Ruchers du Morvan are sharing their commitment to preserving the Morvan's landscapes and terroir, as well as their passion for bees.
By following an original educational and sensory trail, you'll discover how beekeepers can make a living from their work today, and the challenges they face.
Whether on your own, as a couple, a family or in a group, the visit will appeal to curious beekeepers and gourmets of all ages.
On the programme:
- the life of an organic, extensive beekeeping farm and its workshops
- the large collection of old beehives and the story of how they have evolved over time
- the ingenuity of old beekeeping equipment
- the life of bees in their natural environment, their smells and sounds
- the sensory quality of honeys and their analysis
- tasting honeys and gingerbread
In July and August, guided tours are available every Thursday at 10.30am, with no need to book in advance (cost: €3.50).
The Ecomusée de l'abeille is part of the Ecomusée du Morvan network federated by the Morvan Regional Nature Park.
