In 1920, in an exceptional setting of rolling green hills at the foot of the Pyrenees Mountains, the history of a family passion spanning four generations began.
Yves Michaud, the founder of the company, was a passionate, creative man who devoted himself entirely to beekeeping and the production of honey.
Today, still nourished by this apicultural tradition, “Famille Michaud Apiculteurs” endeavour to produce honeys that are rare, characteristic and refined, honoring bees and nature.
To offer the best possible products, “Famille Michaud Apiculteurs” works closely with French beekeepers, a valued partnership that has grown since 1935. Today, we are proud to have more than 1.700 beekeepers been involved in this family business.
“Famille Michaud Apiculteurs” support and contribute to local agriculture and beekeepers each and every day. “Famille Michaud Apiculteurs” is able to produce honey – a complex product and a pleasure - giving product in its own right.
Through its expertise and its culture of caring, tradition, and innovation, “Famille Michaud Apiculteurs” has become a major supporter of beekeeping in France and in Europe.
