Welcome to Backyard Honey Company

Backyard Honey Company started keeping bees in 2013. We now have over 40 hives and we keep them as naturally as possible. We can’t control where they forage (they will fly up to 5 km) so we are reluctant to use the term organic, but we use no antibiotics or synthetic chemicals on them. Our honey is unpasteurized and delicious!!!

Some of our bees are in our backyard (of course) while others are on a nearby organic farm they share with cows & horses who also enjoy the clover and other flowers. We try to give them all they need and then leave them alone as much as possible so they can do their amazing work. We hope you enjoy the products of our hives and our bee family!

Sponsoring a Hive & Swarm Removal

Are you interested in supporting bees but aren’t able to become a beekeeper?  You can sponsor one of our hives and for that, you will receive updates on your hive and 10 jars of honey.  Contact us for more details.

We also remove swarms in the Waterloo Region.  Contact us if you have some bees that need to be moved to a happy home!
