Wildflower Honey Collective is a small scale honey operation owned by beekeepers Benjamin and Brianna, based out of Orono, Ontario. After graduating from University on Canada’s East Coast, Ben and Bri took time to travel throughout South America and across Canada, a journey that led them to strengthen their awareness of the natural world. Returning to Ontario in pursuit of making a sustainable contribution that would involve their love of cooking and the outdoors, they passionately joined the world of beekeeping - and they haven't looked back.
With a focus on outreach and education Ben and Bri offer workshops, talks and seminars to people of all ages, highlighting the importance of bees in our eco-system. They combine their abilities of photography, farming, culinary arts and biology to weave together the story of the bees, the truth about colony collapse disorder and to promote a more healthy, environmentally friendly lifestyle.
