Our honey program is a collaboration between the farm and B-Y’s Honey on Concession 6 in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Ed, the apiarist, cares for the hives during the season, harvests the honey in the fall and ensures that the bees are prepared for hibernation through the winter. The pure honey is sold under our Lowrey Bros. label and used in other Lowrey Bros. products like our Honey Bourbon Peaches.
Our bees help us celebrate the garden. Our produce cannot thrive without the bees to pollenate, and the bees cannot survive without the nectar from the variety of plants and flowers we nurture here. Chef Ross honours this life cycle through his dishes by incorporating our honey into vinaigrettes, granola, desserts and cheese plates; pairing local honey with local produce on the plate to reflect how our bees are paired with our flora in nature.
