Ontario honey

Does anybody have a favourite source for Ontario honey? I'm not looking for any particular kind, just wondering what's out there to try and where I could find it.

Board's Honey from Restoule is one of my favourites, though I haven't found it in Toronto (other than at the Royal Winter Fair some years).

  1. I've seen Bee's Universe raw Ontario honey sold at farrmers' markets like The Brickworks (on Saturday) and Riverdale (on Tuesdays). I believe the beekeepers are from Innisfil.

    1. Munro Honey is produced midway between London, Sarnia, and Chatham, from clover.
      The traditional creamed honey uses a fine grain (starter) unique to them since 1950.
      If you order online, ask for extra white or better (grade) creamed honey.

      1. Campbell's Honey House just outside Warkworth sells several varieties of their own honey from their hives set up around the Rice Lake region. Bring your own containers or use theirs. The honey is $2.50 a pound and very yummy!

        1. Toronto Life has written about the honey shop at 100 Steeles West, in that crescent called "Yorkville North". No fancy preparations, but it's "homemade".

          1. re: Wiley

            I think this is the best place to buy honey in Toronto. It is worth the drive. I like the Kasha (buckwheat ) honey for honey cake.
            Great variety of choice.

          2. Not sure of the name or if he's still there (End of season you know) but there's a guy at the Newmarket farmers market that sells honey. It's excellent. The best honey I've ever had.
            He has his hives up that way and does it all himself.
