The Lautaret Workshop – Producer

Véronique and Jérôme FOUVET have been beekeepers for nearly 15 years.

About : The Lautaret Workshop – Producer

Véronique Riche and Jérôme Fouvet keep bees at the Col du Lautaret at an altitude of over 2000m. They have created and developed a number of gourmet honey-based recipes, as well as establishing a range of beauty products, including soaps and moisturisers.

We started beekeeping in 2007 and over the years have created and developed a number of recipes. Our specialities include pure honey gingerbread and energy bars for hikers. We also collect the propalis from the hives to make an alcoholate and a cream. In addition, Veronique has now started making soap from olive oil enhanced with honey, propolis and beeswax. We really enjoy converting what the hive offers us into our own produce.
