Started in 2008, we are a small family run beekeeping operation. We are striving to produce the healthiest and purest honey and beehive products possible. Our operation is still in the development stages and we hope to have a steady supply of honey in the near future.
Some 2013 honey is now (delivered Oct. 8) available at Nature’s Pantry, Smithers, BC.
I’m sorry to say that we only have a limited supply of honey this year. We are trying our best to have a dependable amount for our loyal costumers and hope to be there for next season. We should have another batch ready at Nature’s Pantry in a couple months (as time permits).
Like a fine wine, honey will vary year to year depending on a large amount of variables. The 2013 season proved to be considerably dry and the evidence can still be seen in the remnants of the summer blooms. For some reason the wild roses did not flower very well this year, and you will notice considerably fewer rose hips on the plants this fall and winter. I was counting on a good fireweed crop but in many areas the plants just shrivelled up and never flowered and you can see that the browned plant has little seed at this time. So, we had a lower yield and the honey is slightly different than in previous years. It has a more amber colour and slightly stronger flavouring. The jar we tested had a pleasingly smooth texture and good mix of flavours, though not as aromatic as last season. Still, an excellent raw honey that I take great pride in bringing to the valley.
Prices can be found on the Honey Sales page. Please note that we only have 1 kilo glass jars available at this time. We will have some 3 kilo pails later in the season but are trying to stop using plastic. Please see the Honey Sales page for more details and the discount available for buying 3 x 1 kilo. Thanks.
Please note that we are actively avoiding the recent GMO canola plantings and there is more to read about this issue in the Organic??? section.
