Bees and Honey
Our apiary is located primarily at Elk View Acres, where the bees have access to many nectar crops throughout the year. We will be providing honey seasonally to the markets.
We also have several hives that can be rented monthly for pollination purposes (this includes a minimum of two hive checks per month, which you are welcome to observe). The service is available for Cobble Hill, Cowichan Bay, Mill Bay, and Duncan. Please email to make inquiries about hive availability for 2019.
We have now purchased a honey extractor, which is available for rent as well. We are happy to teach you how to extract your honey!
Julia had her first taste of beekeeping 12 years ago in New Zealand. Since then she has taken beekeeping courses in Brazil and Canada, and has had her own hives for the past several years. In 2018 she successfully completed the Bee Master course and examination in advanced beekeeping with the Ministry of Agriculture.
