The Ballons des Vosges Park is dedicated to promoting short tours as well as local produce and craftsmanship.

Honey and fruit juice productions fully contribute to the biodiversity in our valleys, and to the hues and aromas in our landscapes. Bees and flowers are inseparable. Bees contribute to the reproduction of more than 80 % of flowering plant species; therefore beekeepers are key biodiversity players. Those who join the Park in commitment are careful to use only products that respect the environment and bee health, and prefer welcoming visitors within their workshops. The honeys come from diversified flora across the territory: meadow and mountain forest flowers. Fruit juices labelled by the Park solely originate from high-stem orchards, a traditional landscape feature in our valleys and vineyards. These are natural juices, with subtle aromas from diverse local varietals. By promoting fruit from their apple trees, pear trees and others, the producers contribute to maintaining an ecosystem rich with insects, birds and other small mammals.
