  • Natives of Picardy, a region in the north of France, teachers Viviane and Christian Macle, settled in Québec in 1969. In 1976, Christian, who had been passionate about beekeeping since childhood, bought a small farm in the Saint-Benoît (Mirabel) area, which the couple transformed into a bee farm over time. They had about a hundred beehives at the time.


    In the 80s, they officially launched a line of honey. This visionary couple, fuelled by their passion for beekeeping and equipped with their teaching skills, decided to acquaint people with the wonderful world of bees and opened a small beekeeping shop. Over the years, and after many expansions, the Macle family, always motivated by the desire to spread their knowledge, further continued their growth by remaining open to visitors year-round and diversifying their products.In the 90s, they began to produce meads and artisanal beverages.


    Today, Intermiel is a large-scale farm that manages the production of 5,000 beehives, runs a 15,000 tap sugar bush and a 600 apple tree orchard. Intermiel is recognized provincially and across North America for the quality and diversity of its products, as well as for its educational visits. Thanks to its agri-tourism orientation, it attracts more than 100,000 visitors a year, of which 15,000 are students from Québec schools.


    In 2006, the company’s future was assured, when the Macles’ daughter, Eléonore, assumed ownership of the business along with her parents.


    Today, the Macle family can be proud of producing a line of honeys that are wholly of Québec origin, and which are BNQ-certified (Québec Standards Bureau). This is the result of several years of work to have their honey recognized as being a 100% Québec product, derived from the production of their 5,000 beehives, and supported by a traceability program.
