  • Description


    We are Elodie and Xavier, french beekeepers in Gascony. We live with our daughters Sarah and Elsa, 13 and 11 years old, in a village: Seissan. It's 90 km from Toulouse, and from Pyrénées mountains.
    Our daughters are very nice and they love drawing, cooking, dance and arts. We like to go in the mountains for trekking and we use to dance salsa and argentine tango.
    We have a little farm, organic farming and 800 beehives. We produce organic honey in Gascony and Pyrénées mountains.
