THE WORLD OF OUR BEES
A collection of pictures of and around our bees
We run a small family farm with the focus on honeybees just outside of Athabasca alongside the Athabasca Riverbanks. Our bees are kept in traditional hives, as natural as can be, without any chemical treatments. No pesticides! No antibiotics! This is huge in our eyes!! Because commercial beekeepers use all of these in their hive management.
We are making our own wax foundations not only to save this planet from plastic overload, but also reverting back to small cell frames, which come closer to the bees natural comb cell sizes.
All our honey is raw. For maximum health benefits we absolutely do not use heat during extraction, and only strain the honey, keeping in propolis, wax and pollen particles for added health value.
At our Apiary we like to keep the carbon footprint small and therefore use glass jars for the honey as much as possible. These can be reused in your own home, recycled or if you are local, you can come back with them and get them refilled.
