Country Bee Honey Farm
Saanich Peninsula Honey
At Country Bee Honey Farm we pride ourselves on our amazing honey, delicious infusions, farm raised livestock, and unique gift ideas. Our Premium Honey is collected from nine different locations around the Saanich Peninsula. Who knows, our bees might be making honey from your backyard! No extraction tastes the same, and neither is your experience when you visit the farm. But one things is certain… there is always something exciting to see at Country Bee Honey Farm!
In 2015 Jason and Lindsay took a hard look at their big city life and it was abundantly clear they weren’t living the life they wanted. So they took a giant leap of faith and purchased an 11 acre farm in the town that Lindsay grew up in.
If you’ve driven by the property you’ll notice that there is a lot going on, and a lot more to come. We have beautiful walking gardens, animal pens for the kids, and picnic tables for you to sit and enjoy a coffee and honey treat at. Come into our store to try all the fabulous honeys we have. The honey tasting bar is full of delicious choices.

Hot Pepper Infused Honey
Our infused honeys are made on the farm. We take local habanero peppers, dry them, and then infuse them into our Blueberry Honey for 3 months. The honey pulls all the delicious flavours and oils out of the the peppers. It warms your mouth and gives a nice heat, but not too hot. This is one of our personal favourites. We put this sh#t on everything! Try it on cheeses, in marinades, or drizzled over apple pie and ice cream. The choices are endless.
Beeswax Globe Candle Holders
Elegant Beeswax Globe candles create the perfect ambiance for any room. Globes come with a beeswax tealight, tealight holder and mirror plate. When lite they glow and give off a beautiful aroma. The globe will never wear out, just replace the tealight as it burns.
In our opinion, this is the best book written for those that want to plant gardens to attract pollinators. You don’t have to own a beehive to help save the bees, do it by planting flowers that feed them! This book has so many awesome little tidbits, recommended for any gardener or bee enthusiast.
Whiskey Infused Honey
We take used Whiskey barrels from DeVine Vineyards and fill them with our Blueberry Honey. Then we age the honey for 5-6 weeks. The honey pulls moisture out of anything surrounding it, including the wood. The wood starts to crack and the honey starts leaking out, that’s when we know it’s done. You’ve never tried anything like this before. Try it on cheeses, paired with desserts, or in your morning coffee. The opportunities are endless!
Venex Bee Venom Ointment
The most active ingredient in Venex ointment is bee venom. Bee venom contains powerful anti-inflammatory properties and can be used to decrease inflammation of the skin. It can also benefit people with rheumatoid arthritis. Venex ointment stimulates the skin to produce extra cortisone. This helps speed up the healing process in a natural way.
Creamed Cinnamon Honey
A piece of toast with this honey spread across it is amazing! This honey has a delicate cinnamon flavour to it and a no-drip, smooth texture. The honey gets its creamy texture from naturally getting crystallized, maintaining small sugar molecules. Due to it already being crystallized it won’t harden if it’s on your shelf for some time. You can’t go wrong with this one.
