Meadow No. 3

This honey is very thick, and appears a beautiful yellow colour with a tasty butterscotch finish. 

Breathtaking is the only way to describe the apple blossom forest that fills meadow No. 3. For over 100 years, the apple trees have bloomed every spring in the abandoned orchard. For the few days they are in bloom, the bees in this meadow work tirelessly to find every drop of nectar while pollinating along the way. Apple blossom honey can be very difficult to harvest this far north.

The honey bees are often just starting to build up from winter and are using all of the nectar they collect to feed to their brood. Occasionally we are able to harvest an apple blossom dandelion honey. For the rest of the season, the bees can be found flying around the hayfields and headed directly north to the Tiffin conservation area. 

 

About naked bee honey: 

For the love of honey bees & honey

tucked away bee meadows

The one rule we live by: To provide all of our honey bees the best possible place to live & thrive.

Single meadow origin means one thing: the honey in each meadow collected by the bees that forage there is kept separate throughout its journey from hive to jar.

 Similar to wine, each meadow has its own Terroir. The different flora grows around each meadow all contribute different tasting nectars that the bees collect. Combined together this creates a honey recipe unique to each meadow. Meadows just a few kilometres apart can create completely different tasting honey.

 The other key defining difference is that we do targeted honey harvests after each main nectar flow. Some meadows create great spring and summer honey, and others are better for summer and fall honey. Each meadow has its own unique nectar flow that the bees capture for us.

 It was a concept that seemed so simple at the time, little did I know it would come to be one of the defining characteristics of naked bee honey.

raw, unfiltered & wild

We are passionate about providing our honey bees with the best places to forage. Not only does this create an ideal environment for the bees to thrive, but also great honey as well.

low impact honey harvesting

No fume boards, sprays, or rough handling. Each frame of honey harvested has the bees gently brushed off, back into their hive.

cold extracted

No heating before extracting, no heating before jarring. Our honey is cold processed all-around, and that’s part of why it tastes so good.
