Vaudois honey

Vaudois honey is very popular at breakfast time or as an ingredient in various recipes. Passionate beekeepers take care of their hives in all the regions of the canton of Vaud.

There are about 800 to 1,000 hives in the canton of Vaud. On average, each contains 40,000 bees that work relentlessly to provide us with delicious and 100% local honey. The diversity of the landscapes of the canton of Vaud is found in the various types of honey. Produced from mid-June to mid-August, forest honey is distinct in colour: darker and with a more intense and woody taste. Flower honeys are divided into spring and summer honeys: the former is very light, almost white, and the second has a golden hue, like the sunflower petals the bees visit in this period.
The honeys that meet the criteria defined by the federations of beekeepers bear the label “honey from the County of Vaud”. They are available from Terre Vaudoise stores, from “Marché Paysan” producers and in some supermarkets.
