We (Blaine, Jan, and Duaine Hardie) are a family farm operating as a hobby farm since 1980 and as a commercial apairy since 1996. We try to run 300 colonies to produce 24000 lbs. of honey a year. Duaine is a 4th generation beekeeper. We sell Vancouver Island Wildflower Honey from the farm gate as well as at some local stores. Beeswax & comb honey in season.

We have no set hours of operation but sell at the farm gate daily: just phone ahead.
