Meadow No. 1 is our home meadow. Located along the Nottawasaga river corridor, the bees fly up and down the river collecting nectar from the forests that border it. Along with the river corridor, we have our one acre flower farm. The bees are in the field all summer collecting from all of the different flowers blooming every day.
Tasting notes of: an abundance of flavours arriving one after another. This honey is bursting with fruity floral flavours.

Meadow No. 7 August
Meadow No. 7, creates different tasting wild honeys every year. The first meadow in our Northern Lights label. This is pure northern wilderness honey. Nestled between northern lakes and wetlands, surrounded by thousands of acres of forest. This is frontier honey.
Tasting notes of: This honey is very difficult to describe. Opposite from last years august honey this one is light and citrusy with notes of evergreen. All I can say is you can taste the wild forests in the honey.

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.
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.
