Ontario Honey Creations is a family owned and operated business that is dedicated to providing seasonal terroir honey, artisan honey vinegars and Mead. Our honey bee yards are located within the Greater Toronto Area in Ontario's Green Belt. Our honey is harvested by season and location, highlighting the unique taste of each location.
Our current locations are:
Headwaters:Headwaters is a region about an hour north of Toronto that includes Hockley Valley, Mono, Caledon, Orangeville and Amaranth.
Rouge Valley:Starting in the Oak Ridges Moraine and moving south to Lake Ontario, Rouge Valley is a mix of rural, agricultural, park land and suburban development located in the eastern GTA.
Toronto (Toronto Bee Rescue): Toronto is the largest city in Canada with numerous ravines and green spaces providing unique non-agricultural nectar sources. The honey bees in these yards are the rescued colonies we have collected throughout the GTA.
All of our honey is raw and unpasteurized. Raw unpasteurized honey has naturally occurring beneficial enzymes and local pollens. A proceed from each sale helps support our work as Toronto Bee Rescue. Toronto Bee Rescue provides free honeybee swarm removal services in the Greater Toronto Area and humane honeybee hive removals. www.torontobeerescue.ca
Our Honey Vinegars are all made using our own local raw honey in small batches. We follow a traditional static fermentation process, without the use of preservatives or sulphites. We then age the honey vinegars for atleast 6 months which results in a smooth and balanced vinegar.
Our creamed honeys are also all naturally made using our honey from our bee yards. We creamed the honey for about 3-5 days to create a smooth butter-like consistency. We then infuse the creamed honeys with quality ingredients.
