Swan Valley Honey, located at Honey Bee Zen Apiaries, is known for its sustainable beekeeping and a growing list of terroir-based niche honeys. We specialize in the careful production of honey from the apple and cherry fruit fields we pollinate in the rich Creston Valley agricultural belt, including local Kootenay Wildflower and Fireweed. Our golden and amber honeys have won awards, both provincially and on the North American stage. You can almost taste the sunshine that our bees have harnessed to produce such flavourful sweetness. We are committed to working with farmers who respect the land they use and the bees we provide, and we seek out strong and beneficial relationships. We are interested in the science and breeding of bees, the production of honey and hive products, and the challenges bees and their keepers around the world face. We are passionate about educating people on the importance of bees to food production.
