Laughing Apple Farm Island Blossom Honey made on Salt Spring Island

Honey

We have been keeping bees for over 10 years. We try to follow best organic practices when possible, but at the minimum we use no medicines or miticides when honey supers are on the hive. We grow a large diversity of plants that provide a mixture of pollens and gives our honey a rich and distinct combination of flavours. We usually keep from three to five hives and sell the honey we can't use. A healthy hive should get around 100 pounds of honey, but we have not seen these quantities yet. Beekeeping is more difficult now with increased mite and weather stresses. We continue to learn and develop better practices by comparing our experiences with other people on the island.

We normally take honey off in August. We sell the honey in 500 ml glass jars at the Saturday Market in the Park, and Tuesday Market on Salt Spring Island.

Hay

We take orders for our hay starting in January. We usually cut, bale, and deliver our hay in early July. We try to sell all of our hay directly after baling. Call if you need small quantities, we may still have some left. We do not use herbicides or synthetic fertilizers on the fields. The hay is good for horses, goats, and sheep. Bales are 50-70 pounds.

Firewood

Seasoned firewood (mostly alder and fir) is available in one cord loads throughout the year. We cut and split our firewood from trees that have been down and in logs for over a year. Call for availability and delivery.
