We want to restore the beneficial action of nature in its entirety. This is why the birch sap that we offer you is a fresh sap without preservatives, without filtering, without alcohol and unpasteurized in order to keep its therapeutic properties intact.
We collect the sap by making a small hole. First, we connect a food grade pipe which is changed regularly. It is connected to a carboy. Then we drill only to the length necessary for collection. Finally, we recap at the end of the collection.

This could be the motto of the Principality of Andorra.
Andorra has obtained no less than 2 distinctions from the UNESCO to guarantee and protect its natural heritage.
For example, the Ordino Valley, classified as a biosphere zone, and the Madriu Perafita-Claror valley, classified as a world heritage site.
The Principality of Andorra has been a small independent democratic and social republic since 1993.
However, its history mentions the passage of Charlemagne in the valleys of Andorra. Having left to fight the invasion of the Muslims, he grants his gratitude to the Andorran people.
The Principality of Andorra owes its name to a treaty signed in the Middle Ages, on September 8, 1278, between the Count of Foix and the Spanish Archbishop of La Seu d'Urgell. They became the first co-princes of Andorra. A tradition that continues until today between the President of the French Republic and the Spanish Bishop.
The Madriu-Perafita-Claror Valley: heritage of humanity
Ordino, biosphere reserve, recognized by UNESCO
If official organic farming offers a guarantee of practices that are more respectful of the environment than conventional agriculture, Nature & Progrès is not satisfied with this. The association believes that mere respect for technical rules is not enough. can prevent the excesses and dead ends of the conventional system (profitability and the race for productivism in the lead). In its concern for coherent agriculture, Nature & Progrès attributes its mention in a global way both from technical specifications but also based on a charter, taking into account environmental, social and economic aspects. This charter has as a backdrop a social project based on friendly and close relationships between people and their environment: a humanist, ecological society and alternative.
To be able to officially benefit today from the “organic” designation, a product of animal or plant origin must meet precise criteria, recorded since 1991 in the European specifications of biological agriculture. These are controlled by approved certifying bodies (third-party certification imposed by European regulations). Nature & Progrès manages its own specifications independently of European regulations. These specifications have been co-constructed since 1964 and regularly updated. They are developed in consultation between professional and consumer members. Nature & Progrès defends Participatory Guarantee Systems, an alternative to third-party certification, guarantors of the solidarity approach integrated into the organic movement.
This mention promotes spaces where the conservation of natural heritage and economic activities coexist with the sustainable development of the territory.
It is, framed by the charter of the Ordino biosphere reserve recognized by the UNESCO and the Nature and Progress charter that we harvest our fresh birch sap and that we pick our plants and buds from 1600 meters above sea level. We harvest sparingly so as not to have any impact on the flora. We do not We never collect more than 10% of a species in a given area.
