Beekeeper: Patricia Carrupt

Chablais Valaisan, Switzerland

How long have you been a beekeeper?

We celebrated our tenth year of “carrupt-miel” in 2019.

Why did you become a beekeeper?

We started beekeeping out of curiosity, passion and the pleasure of being in nature, and above all to eat good honey!

What is your favorite thing about beekeeping?

Our favorite activity in beekeeping is in the spring, when we open the hives for the first time. Suspense and hope for the season to come…

What are the floral sources for your bees?

In our region, we have a multifloral and forest resource. We don’t have our hives towards intensive crops.
