Parc naturel régional Gruyère Pays-d'Enhaut - Julien Rouget is a man of adventure and a lover of the great outdoors. Originally from Brittany, Julien worked as a river guide in Canada for more than 10 years before he settled in Charmey, having fallen under the charm of the rugged, pristine landscape and vibrant social and cultural life of the Jaun valley.
As well as working for the resort’s ski lift company, TéléCharmey, Julien is an avid apiarist. He feels the deep connection with his adopted home most keenly when he is tending to his hives. Today, Julien lives in tune with the seasons and in harmony with his bees. The area around Crésuz, Cerniat and La Valsainte is an excellent habitat for bees. As the small hills and gentle slopes face in different directions, the wide variety of wildflowers that grow there bloom at different times, extending the feeding season for these prodigious pollinators.
L'Abeille des Préalpes is the name of the honey produced by Julien's bees. There are two types – spring and mountain honey – and b

500 g jars are on sale in assorted shops in Charmey and at the TéléCharmey base station.
