HOW IT WORKS
The Hiveshare Program, explained
The Hiveshare program was created for people to enjoy unique, local, unpasteurized, artisanal honey from the nectar of the vast variety of plant life in the gardens, fields and wildflowers found here in our area. Becoming a member is easy and anyone can participate.
You choose a quarter, half or whole hive and the share of the honey produced by that colony is delivered to your door shortly after it is harvested and extracted.
HOW TO JOIN
Each year you can increase or decrease your share of honey for the following year. You can join anytime throughout the year.
All equipment is new and must be built and painted, so the initial cost is higher. In the second year and thereafter the cost of local, unpasteurized, artisan honey is significantly cheaper. You can trade up or down in each year.
Typically a full hive will produce 14-18 L of honey per year. This is equivalent to 23 - 26 kilograms or 51 - 57 pounds of honey.
First Year: $800
Following Years : $400

You are purchasing the honey, not the hives. Comb and beeswax can be purchased separately on this website. Payment is up front and delivery is free in Georgina.
I regularly give free tours of my apiary, from May to September, with the opportunity to "pet the bees" and sample honey directly from the warm honeycomb. Contact me directly and we can sort out a day & time.
