Miels d’Anicet Honeys
Excellence in health
Exclusive product of the land. Never has such a designation been this precise. Beating their wings to the rhythm of the seasons, the bees responsible for Miels d’Anicet’s honey travel collectively, on average, 50,000 km over a pesticide-free, chemical fertilizer-free and GMO-free land. To produce 500g of honey, bees gather pollen from 3 to 9 million plants and wild flowers, all indigenous to Ferme-Neuve in the Mont-Laurier region. This land has maintained a richly diversified population of wild flowers throughout the years, in quality as well as in variety, which is almost unique in Québec.
Nothing artificial. Nothing industrial. Nothing added. All is done according to the age-old craft of apiculture where bees are treated like queens and, in respect for their titanic work, honey is harvested like a gift from the gods.
Beekeepers used to sell honey in its raw state, never pasteurized nor filtered. Honey is a natural sweetener made by bees from the nectar of wild flowers and it is also an antioxidant rich in minerals, carbohydrates, micronutrients and enzymes. Honey supplies the necessary ingredients for an active, healthy life.
Miels d’Anicet honeys are cold-extracted which ensures the preservation of aromas and of their nutritional and medicinal values. The recipe is simple: minimize human manipulation and keep honey in its purest form! Organic honeys crystallize faster because crystallization is a natural phenomenon and a sign of quality. When honey crystallizes, a simple bain-marie will bring it back to liquid.
Savouring good honey is a pleasure no word can describe. Producing quality honey should not stray from this essential criterion. Respect for the bees, taste, aromas, health benefits and pleasure are the real essence of Miels d’Anicet. Now, it is your turn to taste it.
