In the heart of the north Interlake in Manitoba we have an abundance of clover and alfalfa. Our bees forage on these plants collecting nectar during the months of July and August. During that time a hive of bees can collect enough nectar to produce 150 + pounds of honey per year. Honey is a natural source of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Honey is the only natural product that is not refined which does not spoil.
In a single colony, there is one queen and 20 000 to 60 000 bees. It takes about 500 bees and 2 million flowers to make 1 pound of honey. Most bees in the colony are workers and live about 6 weeks during the summer months.
Honey dates back to ancient times and is very versatile. It can be used in cooking, baking, tea and coffee, and on toast. In most recipes, with minor changes, honey can be partially or wholly substituted for sugar. Honey can be mixed with different ingredients to make beauty products ranging from hair care to face creams and body scrubs.
Our honey is raw, unpasteurized, 100% Manitoban, 100% Canadian.
