A Working Crerar BeeHive
Liquid honey is extracted from the comb, and then strained. Clover, goldenrod and buckwheat honey are available in this area.
Creamed or granulated honey is crystallized under controlled conditions and has a creamy, smooth texture.
Environment strongly influences honey production. Weather affects flowering seasons, which affect the bees' ability to collect nectar, which affects honey production.
Quality is of the utmost importance. Care is taken in every step of this labour intensive process, from collecting, extracting, and packaging, to storage and delivery.
Queen bees are essential for maintaining hive populations, and for breeding strong, healthy colonies. They can now be brought in from suppliers in Ontario.
