Swiss beekeepers in the Provence region of France

item1a

Jean Pierre Berger founded his beekeeping enterprise in 1982 with 300 to 400 hives in the Luberon area of the Provence Region in southern France. From the beginning he aimed at top quality honey with supple texture, fine crystallisation and distinctly individual taste of the varieties.
He refined the traditional method of “transhumance”, i.e. the continuous shifting of the beehives through the year according to climate and flowering seasons.
To preserve the bee’s health, he breeds his own queens and fights successfully with natural methods against parasites like the redoubtable varroa mite.

Sebastien Bonjour, his collaborator for long years, contributed in many ways to the methods now used. Swiss of origin, he was born and brought up in France. Since 2008 he has taken over the care of Jean Pierre’s hives and therefore shares responsibility for the high quality of the honey of Miel de Provence.

Beatrice Stocker Berger joined the enterprise in 1994. Besides of supporting the honey extraction, she is responsible for marketing and sales. Miel de Provence honey and other products are sold throughout France, Switzerland and Germany..
