Firstly it was our scientific curiosity, secondly the amazing results and thirdly the way to benefit both our lavenders with fast and high quality pollination and our bees by producing lavender honey without adding pies of extra sugars or anything else to their diet.("Quantifying variation among garden plants in attractiveness to bees and other flower-visiting insects",Garbuzov M.,Ratnieks F.,University of Sassex 2013)
Angustifolia varieties, which bloom either continuously or multiple times, offer a greater opportunity for bees to have a regular ‘diet’ of lavender pollen and nectar! Scientists in France and Australia have found that angry honeybees are less likely to attack when exposed to certain floral scents, especially lavender ! ("Lavender and bees"Lavender growers association of U.S.A,2014)
Why we use bees to our lavender fields?
Predict our lavender oil quantities almost a month earlier
by analysing the chemical substance of our honey !
Produce our luxury lavender honey at limited quantities!
Pollinators at zero cost,so decreasing final price.
Keep our fields totally clear of chemicals or any other additive.
We do not add artificial food to our hives! We leave some lavenders unharvested for feeding our bees!
we apply science.
