Creamed Clover Honey 2022 Pre-Orders
Creamed Clover Honey is what we are most known for, it has a soft and delicious natural honey flavour. We put the honey through a freezing process which gives it a smooth spreadable consistent texture year round.
How is Honey Made?
A worker bee will collect nectar and pollen from nearby flowers. They will take it back to the hive to store in the honeycomb. The bees will help dry out the sugars by flapping their wings and capping the honeycomb with a wax seal. Like a little mini honey jar.
It takes about 2 million flowers to make 1 pound of honey
On average each bee makes 0.8g of honey in their average 6 week lifetime
A single hive can have 10,000 or more bees!
Update on Our Bees
In the winer of 2021/2022 we sadly lost all of our bees, mostly to weather and a few simply flew away. It was really hard for us to find new bees this year, and we were not able to fully recover, as was the same for nearly every beekeeper in the country. There was a global shortage of bees.
Less bees has a ripple effect, less pollenation for our farms, less flowers in bloom, less crops grown, less honey and wax made, higher costs of production in all of our connected industries, bigger impact on consumers and more!
We have partnered up with some private local farms who are still able to provide us with top quality raw clover honey. We are honoured to connect these farms with our Forever Bee Community. This (every) year our weather was a bit weird, and honey production and harvests all seem to be about 4 weeks behind. So instead of having honey ready now, it's going to be ready closer to the end of October. That's quite a long time to wait for a pre-order, but we do know demand will be high and quanity will be low this year. So we are opening up our pre-orders a little ahead of schedule.
Important To Know:
1. We do not know when delivery will begin, our hope is around the final week of October.

What's inside a Bee Hive?
The inner workings of a beehive are fascinating. Each layer is very important and has it's own purpose. It's very important for us that the bees are taken care of above all else. Honey harvest comes last. Annanie walks us through the parts of a beehive and how we do our best to keep our bees stay safe year round.
A rare delight, honeycomb is the most pure and natural form of honey. This is straight from the hives, it has not been filtered, processed or chaged in any way. Honeycomb is a great addition to charcuterie boards, parfaits, salads and so much more.
