Beekeeper Gilles Roche is originally from Oisans. He chose to settle in Le Freney d’Oisans in order to produce mountain honey and other bee products.

About : Un Ecrin de Miel – beekeeper

I am from Oisans and was given my first beehive when I was eight years old. Having lived in other parts of France and abroad for my studies, I have decided to settle in my region of origin to work and live my passion. I will explain to you why I chose this craft and why these are such fascinating insects. Come and learn more about their work and natural products!
