Our liquid honey is made from the nectar and pollen of a variety of flowers, trees and shrubs from neighbourhoods within Oak Ridges. It is cold extracted, unfiltered and unpasteurized to allow the final product to retain all of the vital micronutrients that are present when the honey is extracted from the hive. This is the closest you can get to consuming honey directly from the beehive.
Oak Ridges has a complex, diverse mix of wetlands, forests and wildflower pastures which produces a distinct, floral honey.
It is extracted in small batches by season and the colour of our Oak Ridges honey will vary with the changing seasons and the flowers our bees feed on but predominantly will be a rich golden colour. The variety of flowers the honey bees have fed on to create this honey will include: Apples, Maple, Clover, Goldenrod, and a whole range of wildflowers.
