Our honey is delicious, raw, and so good for you. Rumour has it that if you eat local honey you will lower your seasonal allergy symptoms. Rumour also says it's anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory. Regardless of rumour, our bees are so happy that they produce feel-good honey.
It's amazing health benefits come from the 181 distinct compounds it contains, including sugars, protein, amino acids, anti-oxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Another benefit is that raw honey is the one food that will never go bad. Those bees are so smart, they produce the best food ever!
Each honey extraction a unique flavour bouquet.
The colour and flavour of honey is determined from where they get their nectar. Our beehive is located right in the middle of Calgary, so our bees get their nectar from local gardens, trees, and the river valley.
2020 honey is a blend of all seasons, since we only had one extraction in the fall. It is so good! Our tasters said it tastes like cinnamon, fall, honeysuckle bushes, and of course my favorite, like peanut butter but with honey.
Beautiful clear honey with notes of cinnamon. Where did these cinnamon notes come from? That's a question for the bees.
Our surprise batch, we did not expect to extract again until the fall. This one is the darkest of the season with a more intense flavour. Rumour has it that darker honey contains more nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Amazing bees! Here we go again! Such a versatile batch of honey. Right between light and dark so lots of flavour but not too much to use as a sweetener.
Is it because we sit by the hive and talk to them that they are so happy and productive? The late summer honey is almost as light as the spring which is ideal for sweetening without adding intense flavours.
This is the first creamed honey that we have created and it is delicious. We seeded it with our very first honey extraction from 2019 which magically turned to creamed honey on it's own. Do we have magic bees?
