Red House Honey received three new nucleus hives of bees ( known as “nucs”) from Highlands Honey of Portland. These bees are Ontario born and bred, just like their queen. This stock is said to be hardy, disease resistant, good-tempered and very productive, unlike their Italian, Russian and Californian counterparts. These bees do not drink lattes, surf or like caviar. Guaranteed. That means they should–hopefully–get right down to the business of multiplying, gathering pollen and nectar, and making great Red House Honey. Oh, and girls, we really need you to survive the winter! Fingers crossed as Red House Honey ventures into a new honey season. Look for our seriously addictive Raw/Kosher wildflower white honey (the only OVH certified kosher honey in Eastern Ontario) around the middle of August.
