Honey

At the Ontario Honey Company, our honey is exclusively 100% Ontario honey, made by our bees who forage the orchards and fields of rural Ontario.

We carry only premium, number 1 Ontario honey.

Honey Facts

  • A worker bee gathers in their entire life 0.8 gram (0.0288 ounces) of honey.
  • It requires 556 worker bees to gather a pound of honey.
  • Bees fly more than once around the world to gather a pound of honey.
  • Nectar, as gathered by the bee, contains about 70% water (honey is about 17% water).
  • Bees remove the excess moisture from nectar by rapidly fanning their wings over the open cells in the hive which circulates fresh air into the hive and the moist air out.
