Honey Extraction Workshop!

Honey Extraction Workshop!

Come learn all about honey and honey extraction while tasting the terroir of Halifax through the flowers foraged by our urban honey bees!

In this workshop, you’ll get hands-on experience learning how to extract honey using traditional and modern methods. The honey is from our urban beehives in Halifax which you’ll get to extract a raw, unpasteurized jar to take home! You’ll also get to sample a selection of unique honeys from around the world while learning how to sensory evaluate honey!

We’ll have a glass observation hive at the shop, so you’ll also get to meet our honey bees up close! (Please note: This part of the workshop is weather dependent as we won’t be able to transport our bees if it’s raining).

Of course, since it’s being hosted at a dessert shop, we’ll be serving honey cookies and lilac tea!
