Cut Comb Honey - absolutely raw natural honey still in
the honeycomb. A very limited supply.
Sold in 250g trays.

If you want to resell comb honey then place an order by early mid-June as special combs must be inserted into the hives early in the season so the bees can make pure comb.

Propolis - is sold raw by the ounce or as a 20% tincture in honey brandy in 2oz dropper and spray bottles. The health benefits of propolis are just now being revealed. Propolis boosts the immune system and is often used to relieve gum diseases as well as speed the healing of cuts and scratches.

Pollen - the local pollen is a fantastic mix of colourful pollen from near bye species of flowers and trees. Blue pollen is common in Georgina due to the prolific Russian Squill (Scilla siberica)in the town that may have been introduced to the region by the Russian immigrants who founded a colony west of Sutton at Volga and Birch streets many years ago.

Eating pollen is nutritious and might be able to desensitize your body to airborne allergens.It has worked for me and my summer fall hayfever symptoms are gone.

My current reserves of pollen are local to a floral region similar to Georgina. Fesh local Georgina pollen will be available in the spring.
I will be making a special very limited batch of honey with pollen released in the wind before bees are flying from Alder
catkins for myself and others that have early spring allergies. Email me to ask how this is done and order before March.

How to spot local pollen: local Georgina pollen is highly varied in shape and colour due to the high diversity of flowers we have in the region.

Often pollen is shipped in from western Canada where most of the pollen is harvested from industrial farms growing GMO canola and corn.

Beeswax - $10/lb sold in small and large blocks to make candles, cosmetics, lotions and balms for friends and your pets!
You would be amazed at how many natural products you can make with beeswax. I make a leather water repellent and conditioner for my leather Burks and it works well throughout the wet months of the year. My daughter makes lip balms.



A great guide to making so many things with natural Beeswax is Beeswax Alchemy by Petra Ahnert which includes how to make candles, soaps, skin creams/salves custom wood polishes and so much more. Experiment making useful products for yourself and loved ones. Start with pure locally sourced beeswax at a great price.
It's easy to get started.

  Saving the Bees starts each fall with proper preparation of the hives before winter.

Wrapping the hives in a black wind/water resistant fabric is essential and the polystyrene roofs that minimize vapour condensation and keep the hives warm and helps remove stress form the bees that are struggling to maintain an internal hive temperature close to human body temperature.

Beehives in Ontario need about 70 lbs of honey to get through the long winter and the beekeeper must make sure each hive has that amount of honey in October.

The energy expended by a hive is about 40 watts the same as a candle when burning.
