Originally started in 1918, Nith Valley Apiaries is past its centennial. It has been passed on through four owners, each of them learning from the previous beekeeper. Our beeyards dot the countryside throughout Perth and Waterloo counties, as you can see on the map below, where each bee represents one beeyard. There are up to twenty hives at each beeyard, and these hives allow us to provide honey to the residents of New Hamburg and the surrounding local areas.
We believe in working within sustainable local food systems and place a high value on supporting our ecosystem, our local farmers, and our community. We want to offer the best quality we can in our honey products and customer service. We are constantly learning about techniques used by other beekeepers and ways we can support pollinators, and as we learn we are incorporating this knowledge into our business practices. Over the last few years we have been exploring healthy new products such as bee pollen, propolis, and small-batch specialty flavoured honeys. We've also added plants and habitat spaces to our farm to better support pollinators. Learn more about what's happening and who's behind it all here.
We currently supply a number of local stores and restaurants, as well as retailing directly to the public from our 'Honey House' on the edge of New Hamburg. We offer a variety of quality honey products & varying specialty gift items, and you can visit Our Products to see what's available in the honey house right now. Bulk honey is always on tap and we are happy to fill your own containers.
