Please find the detailed description of all these items in our webshop below.
Note: All of these natural honeys are of limited availability and thus it might happen that some of them are sold out before the next harvest arrives. New honeys start to come in from July to September each year depending on the harvest time and the weather conditions in the different regions. We are sorry for this situation but we do hope that our customers understand the circumstances and the limitations given by truly natural and small scale productions.

These honeys from Pierre Froidevaux and Jacques Willemin stem from two small villages, only 5 km apart from each other, within the Nature Park Doubs. They offer a broad range of multifloral flavors, from dandelion to blackberry blossoms, including many many others. The remote and unspoiled landscape of the Doubs Nature Park in the upper Jura is the nectar source for the bees who live at about 1000 m a.s.l. Intense yellow color, rich taste and sweetness.
Right in the heart of Basel, just a few meters from the train station SBB, you can find the hives of beekeeper Stefan Marti situated on the concrete roofs of the Markthalle. The taste of this honey is totally different from the Helvetiaplatz honey, it's stronger, rougher with herbal notes and even reminders of forest honey.
The village of Orselina is situated above Locarno and offers a wonderful view over the Lago Maggiore in the Canton Ticino. An intense, strong and dark honey with a well balanced palate and a hint of the typical bitter Chestnut taste. Fits perfectly with cheese and deserts.
A very intense honey which offers the full range of the Grisons alpine blossoms. There is a considerable portion of dandelion, a powerful yellow color and a quick cristallization with white so-called honey blossoms that is a true sign of all natural spring honeys with low water content. Each spoon of this honey, made by beekeeper Luzy Stucki at the Hof Turisch near the small village of Valendas, is a dip into the flowery alpine meadows of the upper Surselva region in Grisons. A pure natural delight.
Valendas is a small village in the Safiental, a region within the greater Surselva area. The bees that produce this honey live at an altitude of 1250m asl and enjoy a wealth of wild blossoms, including thyme and alpine roses, as well as honeydew from nearby forests. A dark honey which a fascinating balance of multiflower tastes from alpine meadows and forest honeydew, intense and strong.
We discovered this hidden treasure on a hike to Tschlin, a breathtakingly beautiful place at about 1500 m altitude (don't miss it if you are near, Tschlin has been awarded the most beautiful Swiss village...). The taste is simply overwhelming, rich and pure at the same time - golden alpine summer and untouched flowering meadows caught in a glass. Bun Tschlin, as the locals say!
This honey is harvested in a remote Alpine region close to the Maloya pass where lots of Alpine Roses blossom. Their pure sweet taste fits perfectly with the broad range of multifloral aromas from wild Alpine meadows and helps to create a very smooth yet rich Alpine honey.
The rural areas of Emmental and Entlebuch are the two major places in Switzerland where vast quantities of silver fir trees can be found. However, this special forest honey is only available when climate conditions allow for a high honeydew production - about once in three to four years. This is an intense and full-bodied honey.
The upper Simmental is a beautiful landscape stretching out between the villages of Zweisimmen and Lenk. Within this valley, in a place called Matten close to Lenk, live the bees that produce this overwhelmingly rich multifloral Alpine honey. Starting from an altitude of 1000m asl, the nectar is collected both in the valley and on the mountain slopes up to 2500m asl. Wild Thyme and hundreds of other naturally growing flowers generate a unique palate. This honey has been creamed for a smooth, nice handling over a very long period.
