Sweet Pure Honey Spring News

Well Spring has finally sprung, sort of. Although the farm is still covered in snow and below average temperatures, our beekeeper will be heading home to Porcupine Plain, Saskatchewan. It is that time of the year when all things bees start buzzing again and the warehouse will once again become full of activity. Sheldon got a Go Pro and will be capturing more live footage of bees and our stunning landscape. Be sure to follow his Instagram @smokeybeekeeper account and please let him know what you would like to see, ask him questions, he will answer them.

We have added the 7kg pail to the online store. This pail will see you save $50.00 over our regular priced 1 kg raw honey jars. Just remember to keep your raw honey pail cool. There is a popular misconception that raw honey never goes bad, based of the story of edible 3,000 year old honey found in the pyramids. Yes if raw honey is sealed, kept cool and not exposed to air it will keep. However every time you open that big pail of honey and dig into it, everything in the air enters the pail, best to take out a small amount and store the pail in a cool dark place.

I have also added some beeswax food wraps to the store. These custom made bee foodwraps are handmade in Victoria by Goldilocks Wraps. I am going to slowly add products that fit our green living theme.

This weekend sees the kids and I head back to Kelowona, BC for the spring Craft Culture market. Looking forward to staying at Hotel Zed and breathing in the pine scented fresh air! I made a decision if I have to work, we might as well play too! You can follow our adventure on our sweet pure honey Instagram and Facebook social media accounts.

It is hard to believe I am now traveling with 3 teens, instead of 3 toddlers. This whole journey started from wanting to provide a better future for our family. We wanted to experience life and grow with our children, instead of just existing and struggling to make ends meet.

I have now learned life always comes with challenges and we are blessed to have a healthy family moving forward. Although we face a different set of challenges with raising 3 teens in today’s world, the downturn in the AB economy and below average market prices for honey for the second year in a row, we are still hopeful and grateful. Our commitment to each other and our family remains constant. Faith and honesty can carry you along way!

On a final note if you haven’t seen the new Netflix documentary on honey it is a must watch. Having a first hand glance of what is really going on in the honey industry will give you a deeper appreciation for all the hard working bee farms out there.
