Spring 2020 Update

May 9, 2020

We are very busy this spring getting ready for the honey and gardening season. All of our 31 hives survived the winter except for the loss of one older queen. We successfully merged the bees from that hive into a smaller hive to strengthen the numbers. At this stage, we focus on keeping all the hives fed and healthy as they recuperate from the long winter. Soon we’ll be splitting strong hives to give them more room and getting ready to collect honey!

We are also reconstructing our greenhouse with a larger footprint and peaked roof (better suited to snowy climates as we have learned!).

A very big thank you to all of our customers who bought up our honey and maple syrup faster than we could keep it in stock last year (our first year)! We anticipate more than double the honey stock this year assuming the cooperation of nature, and will post when our first harvest is available.

We have 2020 maple syrup products in stock in multiple sizes (1/2 gallon, 32oz and 16oz) and colors (amber, dark and very dark). Soon, we’ll begin selling through local farm stands, but feel free to contact us for direct purchases in the meantime. Also, we will likely have nuc hives available soon so please reach out if you are interested.
