Our Local honey:
This past spring we had some lovely big hives that were exposed to big leaf maple nectar and then later wild cherry and arbutus blossom. We’ll be focusing on that again for spring 2019!!
Obtained in Spring and late summer; amber coloured, slightly different each year depending on weather and the variety of forage available to each individual apiary location.
A lovely honey with floral tones, sweet with a velvet finish. A local favourite, and an ideal honey for breakfast tea or warm scones
Blackberry Flower Honey
This honey presents with a brightness on the palate followed by sweet warmth; blackberry flower honey is perfumed and floral. Blackberry flowers are considered our main nectar flow and from this we collect our comb honey.
This honey is beautiful drizzled over greek yoghurt, savoury cheeses or caramelized pears.
In the long days of late summer, conditions permitting, we move hives up into the mountains where in temporary apiaries, amongst the bright fireweed our bees gather the last substantial honey flow of the season. The silver lining of forest fires and logging cuts, not always available, weather dependant and quite labour intensive; Fireweed honey has deep tones and a velvet finish ~ a highly coveted honey by all.

Why do we offer Saskatchewan honey?
Because it is absolutely delicious, less floral and perfumed than our own and for some, having certified organic is essential to their food consumption practices.
