Orchard Blossom brand honey, started 36 years ago in Keremeos, British Columbia, has moved to Armstrong, to be part of Home Sweet Home Apiaries, continuing the tradition of providing local honey straight from our very own hives.
You can find our products, including our local honey and creamed honey, in stores throughout the valley. You can also purchase them directly at our farm gate store, where we also have bulk honey sales. Bring your bucket, and we'll fill it up. If you don't live in the Okanagan Valley, call us or drop us a line, and we'll be happy to send your order to you.
Along with our bulk, liquid, and creamed honey, check out our other products listed below!
We have both Okanagan Wildflower (clear) honey and creamed honey available. We sell it in 500g and 1kg jars, as well as in 3kg, 5kg, and 15 kg buckets. We also have bear containers that hold 375g of Okanagan Wildflower honey.
We are happy to work with wedding parties to create the perfect wedding favors for your guests. Our wedding favors are 45ml (approx 1/4 cup) clear hexagon jars of Okanagan Wildflower honey, capped with a gold lid.
Our flavored honey is made with the finest creamed honey, mixed with natural flavoring.
When bees forage for nectar from the flowers, they also gather pollen that they bring back to the hive. Pollen contains all known vitamins, all 23 amino acids, all 27 minerals, all trace elements, hormones, and enzymes, as well as carbohydrates and high amounts of protein. Beekeepers 'trap' the pellets of pollen as the bees take it into the hive.
