We have been producing local honey for over thirty years. Jim has also been a bee inspector for most of this time, and is a breeder of mite-resistant queen bees. Courses in practical beekeeping for beginners are offered in June at Tanglewood Honey. Contact us at Tanglewood Honey if you would like to learn how to manage bees, contribute to local pollination, and make your own delicious honey!
Practices (our standards for raising or making our products)
Our honey comes from our own beeyards in the Eganville area, full of wildflowers and tree blossoms.
Tanglewood honey is unpasteurized, and our bees are raised naturally. Only natural deterrents (formic acid, naturally occurring in bees and ants) are used to prevent bee mites, along with careful breeding of mite-resistant queen bees. An antibiotic is used in the fall to prevent 'foul brood', but this is totally broken down in two weeks, and honey is only extracted in the spring.
We package our honey in re-useable, recycle-able glass jars.
