Are you looking for quality local honey, but don’t know where to look? We’re here for you!
All honey is NOT the same. In different locations around the world, the flavor profile differs. In some places, you’ll get a light floral flavor and in others, a stronger flavor is dominant. Additionally and unfortunately, some honey is not real honey at all! We highly recommend getting to know the source of your honey when you are ready to buy. A great way to do this is to get to know your local beekeeper.
We believe in providing you with delicious honey that’s as close as you can get to the source without sticking a spoon in the hive yourself. By choosing us, you will be enjoying local flavors, supporting the local economy, and reducing your carbon footprint in one fell swoop!
Our hives are located in NW Calgary and Bearspaw. This means the bees are visiting a variety of local wildflowers and gardens. As a result, the honey has a delightful, light floral flavor. When it’s harvest time, we extract using the FlowHive technology. It comes out so clean, it’s basically ready to jar. Plus, the extraction process is fun to experience! Check out our blog post on a year of beekeeping for pictures and videos.
When you order our honey, it may come in liquid or solid form. Solid honey is crystallized, which is a naturally occurring process that happens when in its raw form over time. If you prefer liquid, simply place the jar (lid off) in a warm water bath (gently heating water in a pot works well for this). Gentle heating is important to preserve the nutritional value. Please do not use the microwave!
Honey makes a fantastic gift for all occasions. Gift a jar to a dinner host(ess), as a birthday or anniversary gift, stocking stuffer, co-worker occasions (it’s a perfect secret Santa gift!), and much more. With 4 sizes available, we have a jar to suit many occasions and your budget.
We are delighted to provide custom labels for your next event. From wedding favors to large corporate orders, contact us to learn more.
