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.
Our amazing lady bees did it again – they made more pure and perfect honey!
Why buy our honey?
Taste. It was a finalist in the 2019 Centre for Honeybee Research World's Best Tasting Honey Competition. Really :)
Quality. It is extracted in our micro facility that is Safe Food for Canadians licensed and CFIA inspected. A lot of local honey is processed in spaces that do not meet provincial or federal food safety laws.
Environmentally friendly. Our apiary is in our yard, so when we check on our bees, we walk rather than drive, and our extraction area is 100 percent solar powered.
Our “terroir” is unique. Honey is flower juice, so every honey from every different location tastes different. We’ve been planting pollinator-friendly plants on our property since 2002, and that creates a unique flavour profile for our honey. Along with our spring prairie 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.
Pure and Perfect. Our honey is not adulterated with other sugars or flavours. For those who enjoy flavoured honey, it's best to add the freshest ground spices and herbs to honey just prior to eating. That way, you get the best of all worlds - amazing pure honey blended with the freshest, most robust flavours.
Liquid and creamed, 500g and 1 kilogram at $7 and $12.
Where to buy
At our kennel and when Dan picks up or delivers your dog.
We go into Regina for classes two nights a week and can meet you at selected locations just prior to 7:00 p.m. Contact us for details.
Tony's India Food Center, 417 Victoria Avenue Regina. This is the best place in Regina to buy freshest cinnamon for your honey!
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!
If you love authentic honey, even if you don't buy our lady bees' honey, please source yours from a Canadian beekeeper.
