“Unheated and Untreated”

Hilary has been working with Kurt Streckeisen for 12 years, to learn about natural beekeeping.  Kurt, himself, has been working with bees for 45 years.   Our bees are managed with a perspective that the best defense against the diseases and pests is a healthy, drug free colony who’s own natural resistance is built over generations.

We extract our honey without using any heated tools or tanks, and we do not heat the honey, itself.  Therefore, our honey will harden after a while.  But, it is thick and delicious!

The number of bee colonies vary from year to year.  Therefore, our supply of honey is variable.  It is available for purchase at the Almonte Farmers Market or from the farm.  Please contact us for more details.
