Why production at the abbey is now stopped ?

With its bucolic environment, Sainte-Marie-du-Désert Abbey has always had an important apiary, from which it extracted a delicious sunflower honey.

"Here, the apiary is historic, it exists since the creation of the monastery", confirms the brother Pierre-André. But because of the lack of manpower, the aging community and the diminishing production of honey, the monks decided to sell their 150 hives to a beekeeper in the area. "Ten years ago we stopped producing honey and making candies. Today, in the strict sense of the word, nothing is produced anymore. Until 2011, the less helped us to make your skincare products - Bénédictines de Chantelle - but since the activity was repatriated in full to Chantelle to meet production standards. Father Abbot says: "Ten years ago there were ten more brothers in the community, so much extra labor. Beekeeping is a real activity that mobilizes a full-time brother. At the time of harvest, they had to be four to five. This is no longer possible today given our workforce. "
