DIXIE LOCATION IS CLOSED:  We regret that we have made the difficult decision to close our location at the Dixie-401 Flea Market. With summer coming, we have too many commitments to staff that location ourselves and have not been able to hire staff for that location. But, we are participating in farmers' markets in Brampton and Georgetown on Saturday mornings. And customers can still find us at the Mississauga Flea Market only 12 minutes from the Dixie location. The address is in the bar at the right.

Good News: We were able to open our hives at our home yard during the warm spell in February and ALL the hives have not only survived the winter, but the populations look very strong. If they make it till spring, it will be the first time in several years that we haven't suffered crippling winter losses. We are so grateful to our new neighbours, who have made the ethical decision to farm organically. No more pesticides and GM crops to contaminate our environment and sicken or kill our bees. Thanks Matt & Loren!

We often are asked how we harvest our honey. Below are some photos of the extraction process. First, the frames are removed from the hives and the wax cappings are sliced off, either with a heated knife or with a scraper tool. Then the frames are put into an extractor which spins around; the centrifugal force removes the honey from the frames. It pours out of the extractor into a strainer which catches the larger pieces of wax & other debris. From there the honey goes into the bottling tank and into the jars, ready for customers to enjoy! Below are some photos of our family in the honey house.
