    Description

    I'm a biologic beekeeper in a small village of the Basque country, in the south of France . I've approximately 200 hundred hives in production. For the bees doing different honey, I'm moving, dispatching the hives in the grasslands, forests and mountains during the night.
    The production is different honey and I make some processed products.
    I'm selling the production on the local markets, associations for farmers, biological shops.
    I hope make a garden the season.
