Where are you apiaries located?
We have 6 apiaries, all located in Jerseyville or within a 15-minute drive. One of our apiaries is located on an organic farm, the rest of our apiaries are located in natural settings surrounded by fields of wildflowers.
What floral sources does your honey come from?
Our wildflower honey has many sources. The springtime brings bountiful floral sources including dandelions. June and July see a lot of clover and August and September include flowers such as golden rod. Our buckwheat honey comes from an apiary surrounded by a buckwheat field.
What is buckwheat honey?
Buckwheat honey is a dark honey that has a unique taste and smell. Buckwheat honey is think and has a malty taste with a hint of molasses. We have a limited supply of buckwheat honey each year, so once we sell out it will not be available again until the following fall.
My honey has turned solid, what do I do?
This is a natural process called crystallization. Do not worry, your honey has not gone bad. You can still eat it once it has crystallized. If you want your honey to go back to liquid, place the jar in a pot of warm water. Try to avoid boiling water or microwaving it as that will destroy the beneficial elements that the honey provides to you.
Do you do wedding favours or gifts for special events?
Yes, we do! We have done several favours for weddings, wedding showers and corporate gifts. Please contact us for more details.
I am interested in starting my own apiary. When should I order my Nuc?
The earlier the better. We have limited supply of nucs each year, so once they are gone, they are gone!
When are nucs available?
This really depends on the weather. We generally have our first nucs ready for mid to late May, and a second set available mid to late June. Our May nucs will have an imported queen, usually Buckfast. If the weather cooperates, the June nucs will have a local Ontario queen.

Yes, we are a registered beekeeper with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA). We are also members of the Ontario Farming Association.
Do you offer pollination services?
