Honey
Our honey is raw or unpasteurized.

This means that it has never been heated to over 140°. In fact, our honey is never heated above 90° to avoid ‘cooking’ the honey and removing the flavor.

Some people say that this also retains the medicinal qualities. In short, we remove the wax and that’s all.

All our hives are kept away from cultivated field and feed on wild flowers that are in season in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia.

Beeswax Products
In addition to our honey, we offer a range of pure beeswax candles from ornate pillar candles to hand-dipped tapers. Our candles are a beautiful and aromatic addition to any décor.

We use 100% pure beeswax from our own hives and unwaxed pure cotton wicking. Because beeswax candles burn at a higher temperature than paraffin candles, they do not drip. Also, unlike paraffin candles they do not emit hydrocarbons since they are not a petroleum based product.

We use two types of wax. Capping wax is a buttery yellow wax that the bees use to seal the honey comb as they fill it with honey. The framing wax is a warmer, deeper brown wax that makes up the actual honey comb. It may stay in the hive for years and is darkened by prolonged contact with the honey. Both types of wax burn and smell the same.

Our wax is never bleached or artificially lightened. It is strained and prepared for candle making using a solar melting process.
