Beekeeping - In the Cevennes, near Villefort in the place called Les Balmettes, a traditional apiary of trunk hives from the late 19th century in a forest of chestnut trees. This apiary has about a hundred hives and specializes in the production of chestnut honey. The family that owned it emigrated to the United States in the early part of the 2àth century.
