Where we are and other stuff

Forage, Fresh air and Sunshine make for happy bees

 

Where are our apiaries?

Stewart Road, Pratt Rd, Highland Road, Gower Point Road, King Rd,  Oldershaw Rd, Neilson Road, Christmas Road, Pell Road and Tyson Road.  Then in late summer we move up the mountain into block cuts and into temporary yards.

Other than the Persephone location, all of our apiaries are on private property and not available to the public.

Places that carry our honey – Roberts Creek General Store, Ambrosia health food store (Roberts Creek), Black Berry Shop (Gibsons), WOW art cafe (Gibsons), Gibsons Public Market (at the cheese shop) – and now Gourmet Girl in Davis Bay.

Please visit and explore more of the incredible edibles being produced on the Sunshine Coast. Here are just a few of our favourite spots

Pratt Farm – a farm gate market with a great selection of beautiful organic produce, (including watermelon last summer) and a “budding” soon to be extensive orchard. You’ll see our busy bees there too, and some honey on the table! Pratt Farm is on Facebook!

Persephone Beer – an award winning craft brewery with great community connections, gardens, chickens and not surprisingly … we have a small apiary at Persephone which is just right for small workshops and demonstrations on beekeeping! Click the link to take a look at Persephone Beer, or better yet take a swing by the tap room!    www.persephonebrewing.com

Clarke and Wilson Creek Farm farm gates – Down Tyson Road you will find paradise; two working farms, and two farm gate stands offering you organic heritage apples, organic free run eggs, and organic assorted vegetables. Wilson Creek Farm is on Facebook. Our bees love it there and you will too!

Gibsons Public Market –  Newly renovated and enlarged, located adjacent to the Gibsons Marina.  Fantastic location with a bistro, marine education centre, and marketplace.
