Honey with heart - On the track of the bees from Flumserberg

Description

Discover the world of Flumser honey and accompany Jenny and Jonas through their honey production. With a lot of devotion and heart they produce with their bees an incomparable, delicious honey. In addition to exciting insights into the production process and the life of the bees, you may of course feast on this precious natural product.

On that day you' ll experience the sweet side of Flumserberg. You'll visit a honey farm on Flumserberg, where you'll dive into the deepest secrets of beekeeping. Where and how do bees actually live? What does a beehive look like up close? And how is honey produced at all? Jenny and Jonas will answer these and other questions about bees and their honey. The couple lives on Flumserberg, where they produce Flumser honey with the greatest dedication. What began with a beehive has become a business with more than 300 bee colonies.

Jenny and Jonas also give you tips for your home: for example, how to create a bee habitat in your garden or on your balcony. But what would a visit to a honey factory be without a tasting? Whether on a freshly baked bread or pure - you will have the opportunity to enjoy the liquid gold on site. On top of that, you will get a temptingly scented surprise that you can enjoy at home with your loved ones.
