A little 2oz Baby Honey Bear! How cute is this?
Great for gifts, or a handy way to carry around a small amount of our delectable Swan Valley brand Kootenay Wildflower honey for just those times when you want honey in your barista-made coffee or tea. You can find his big brother, a 375g bear, over in our main Kootenay Wildflower honey section.
We also sell these little bears on special order for wedding party gifts, baby showers and baby-reveal parties! (Enquire directly for large orders.)
Our Kootenay Wildflower forage is a delectable honey produced by our bees from a combination of flowers from alfalfa, clover, snowberry, vetch, sweet clover and other nectar-producing plants living in this verdant valley.
HOW WE KEEP BEES AND TAKE CARE OF OUR HONEY
We practice holistic beekeeping and treat our bees with great care. We don’t pasteurize or heat our honey above nest temperature during extraction or bottling. That way we protect the incredible purity, flavour and rawness of our wonderful product.
This is what makes our honey so special: it is never really the same from one season to the next, and the flavours can subtly change. Even so, there is a stability and regularity to the honey our bees produce. Our reward over the years is a fine natural food. And our customers tell us this is perhaps the best honey they’ve tasted.
HOW DO YOU KNOW THIS IS PURE HONEY?
We rigorously protect the purity of our honey; we regularly send samples in for floral fingerprinting by Canadian honey authentication programs. These programs can identify specific forages and pollens. This process also identifies honeys that have been adulterated with other sugars. It is no surprise that our honeys pass with flying colours.
Our pathway to success as beekeepers is to always remember it is our bees who are our most important employees. In other words, taking care of our bees comes first. That’s the Honey Bee Zen way.
