Mike's Wildflower Honeys are raw and unpasteurized for great taste and healthy eating.
If your honey crystallizes in the jar simply place the jar in warm water (simmer) and it will slowly return to its clear liquid state. Honey keeps its wholesome characteristics up to 120*F or 47*C. near the same temperature in the hive when bees are curing the nectar into honey in July and August.

Buying Honey by the the case of 12 jars is the best value and saves time and resources.

If you require bulk honey it can be sold in 60 lb pails for a low bulk price and I will install a quality NYLON Maxant honey gate on the pail to assist you decanting from the pail for a small refundable fee.

Wedding and party favours are easily accommodated by Mike. We are now taking orders for 2021.

Don't Wig Out - Mike will get your Honey right and on time.

The honey harvest ended mid September and creamed honey production starts early October.

Thanks to my sister Jen who helped in the honey harvest and moving a small apiary to keep the hives safe from varmints.

The honey produced at the Gadsden Family Sanctuary is the sweetest and riskiest to produce.

In the first spring the Apiary was torn apart by hungry black bears emerging from hibernation.

With persistence and greater security the apiary rebounded into the producer of a uniquely sweet natural honey from flowers that grow seasonally long in the Morning Glory Nature Reserve and the surrounding vegetable and strawberry growing farms.

This unique honey has all the sweetness that wilderness can produce.

Where it all started along the banks of the Black River in Sutton Ontario.

This 3 time Sutton Fair first prize winning honey is unique.

Basswood tree blossoms, gardens in the town of Sutton, surrounding meadows and riverbanks edged by water lilies and purple loosetrife all summer contribute to its flavour.

Mike's Honey can be purchased year round from Dan at We Make Wine    and Elaine's Black River Cafe in Sutton.

McKay's

The McKay Cedar Fields is our most remote apiary and after a bear attack was protected with an e-fence. Situated at the end run of glacial til near Wilfrid the surrounding landscape is populated with flowers similar to the Carden Alvar, one of only several alvars in the world.

The Cedar Fields Apiary was started in June 2014 with queen cells and swarms caught in The Sanctuary over the summer. At the end of the summer 6 maturing hives of various strengths went into the winter resting period.

2020 was great year for honey production at the Cedar Fields and the honey tastes wonderful.

Kydd Quarry Lake
