During 2016, we experimented with a new project - honey bees. Living and working on our acreage gives us plenty of space to have a few hives and enjoy the joy of learning from and being with Mother Nature's tiny helpers. As part of our environmental commitment, we've planted over 5,000 trees and shrubs over the years - mostly with flowers and berries - so our yard is a bird and wildlife sanctuary, and is perfect for our bees. Keeping bees is a wonderful way to become calm, present and in touch with Mother Nature.
Pure and perfect artisanal local honey
Taste Our honey was a finalist in the 2019 Centre for Honeybee Research World's Best Tasting Honey Competition. Really :)
Quality Even though we’re a micro producer, we follow all food safety laws. Unlike most local honey, ours is extracted in our Safe Food for Canadians licensed and CFIA inspected facility.
Environmentally friendly Our apiary is in our yard, so when I check on my lady bees, I walk rather than drive to them, and our extraction area is 100 percent solar powered.
Honey is flower juice, so every honey from every different location tastes different. Along with our spring orchard, summer herb and vegetable garden and autumn flowers including an abundance of borage, sainfoin, zinnias and sunflowers, our apiary is surrounded by productive farmland crops and wildflower pastures.
Honey is pure and perfect, and lasts for thousands of years. We don’t add flavours such as cinnamon because the honey would then need a best before date. If you like flavoured honey, add your own fresh spices so you can enjoy the highest quality honey with the freshest flavours possible.
Unlike grocery store honey that is typically blended and pasteurized, real raw natural honey granulates. It’s perfectly fine to eat just like that, but if you prefer it in a liquid state, simply place the sealed jar into a bucket of warm water or into the oven with a light turned on. Voila, liquid honey once again!
