In 2016, Debbie Gray & Jeff Chalmers founded The Heritage Bee Co. after years of longing to get into beekeeping, but never finding the right time nor the right location to place our hives. They identified a unique opportunity to place a small number of hives on private countryside land, for bee-loving people who didn't have the time, energy nor commitment to become a full fledged beekeeper. Heritage Bee Co makes this a possibility for its customers. They are also producers of the finest premium Ontario honeys imaginable.
We believe organic beekeeping is better for bee populations. Healthy bee populations are essential for plant and vegetable pollination, in turn ensuring a healthy ecosystem.
Our approach follows a path of trust in nature, not control over nature. Synchronicity is our guiding principal. And an absolute avoidance of pesticides, herbicides and fungicides is essential.
Like us, you serve what you believe in. We carefully handcraft premium honey from hives that are organically managed in a sustainable way to honour the honeybee. Our popular infused honeys use the highest quality natural ingredients that are sourced from the freshest, finest organic spices and foods founds on earth.
