Mellifera Bees produces distinctive, hand-crafted honey infusions of exceptional quality.
Each jar contains unprocessed honey harvested from ethically managed stationary hives in backyards just like yours, in neighbourhoods not so far from where you live, across Vancouver and the Lower Mainland.
Suffused with a rich bouquet of aromatic flavours, the honey’s unique character is produced from the wild wanderings of Mellifera’s bees and enhanced with a delicate blend of spices or fruit. Each ingredient is chosen for quality and freshness and sourced exclusively from small, independently owned British Columbia companies specializing in certified Organic, Fair Trade comestibles.
Served alongside other high quality foods, Mellifera honeys pair beautifully with wine, artisan cheeses and crusty French bread. Enjoy it drizzled over homemade ice cream, stirred into hot beverages, added to dressings or alone on a spoon.
Delectable, elegant and lovingly prepared, Mellifera products make ideal gifts for all occasions.
Borrowing its name from the Latin Apis Mellifera, or “honey-bearing bee,” Mellifera Bees was founded by beekeeper Melissa Cartwright, whose first name means “honey bee.”
