There and Back Again ...
Our bees are certain to tell a great tale of adventure to win a share of the nectar from lands far away.
Nestled along the Bruce Trail and surrounded by conservation land, our honey bees spend their days foraging amongst the trees and forests of the Niagara Escarpment.
With four hives this year, two part of the Adopt-a-Hive program and one for us, honey harvested this year is from Rivendell.
With unique flavours of apple, honeysuckle, wild berries and moss our Trail Blaze honey is like no other you've tried.
While we normally think of honey bees collecting nectar an average-size colony may bring in 100 pounds of pollen in a season. Since this is the first for our bees, honey load is much lower as they build up comb and numbers to ensure a strong colony going into the winter.
By popular request we have also increased the size of our honey jars from 450 grams to 850 grams!!
This is raw, unpasturized honey so expect it to crystallize and to disappear as quick as you found it.
We aim to have an additional 8 hives by next summer so if you are interested in helping support our tiny apiary by Adopting a Hive for the 2020 season, subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to find out how!

In an effort to become zero waste we are introducing a Jar Deposit fee. Each honey order will be charged an additional $2.25 at checkout, refundable when the jar is returned to us.
