We are a small local, family owned and operated apiary located west of Ottawa, in the quaint village of Stittsville, Ontario. As Simply Honey’s creator, I’ve taken my passion for nature, health and design to a new plateau with my honey farm to create an apiary focused on the well-being and sustainability of the honeybees, their environment, and the creation of healthy, 100% raw, artisan-style honey which is hand packaged with care. My passion continues to extend into skincare and formulating naturally based products with the best ingredients honeybees have to offer. Simply Honey’s products are designed to help soothe and nourish our skin. Our natural soap line offers a multitude of choices from basic nourishing bars to elaborate and elegant designs that will “wow” your senses!
I have had the opportunity to follow under the mentor-ship of seasoned honeybee farmers whom have shared their many insights and secrets into the world of honeybees. My beliefs in working together as a community and supporting one another, are quite similar to the community of honeybees and therefore I am an active member of the Lanark County Beekeepers Association and the Eastern-Ontario Beekeepers Association where I am able to stay connected to community, other local farmers and hobbyists alike. I continue to practice my sense of community involvement through educational presentations for schools and organizations helping to educate children and adults on the importance of honeybees in our environment and the impact they have on the world.
Maintaining a small, non-commercialized, sustainable apiary allows me to personally oversee all my hives with my husband and their care which affords me the time to stay focused on the type of relationship that I wish to have with my bees and their environment. With this in mind, I’m able to respect the entire honey farming process and produce notably high quality honey which is paramount to me and has become the signature set style and standard for Simply Honey. We believe in offering high-quality products that benefit our clients and their overall enjoyment!
From our family to yours, warmest regards, Allison!
