Take a short drive to the scenic Calgary foothills and discover a sweet experience - shopping, learning and tasting - all wrapped up in a sustainable Alberta honey farm.
Chinook Honey Company’s staff will show you all the site has to offer. There is a honey bee interpretive area where you can watch as worker bees bustle with activity in the glass observation hive. Also learn about the organization of the bee colony, how they create delectable honey, raise their brood and how beekeepers manage their fragile charges.
Tantalize your taste buds with a variety of honeys and gourmet honey-made products, such as Saskatoon Honey Jam, Mead Jelly and Dulce de Leche (honey caramel) ice cream.
Also on site is Alberta’s very first Meadery (honey winery). Try award winning meads.
The ‘honey boutique’ carries a wide range of beeswax candles, honey body care products and apitherapy (the medicinal use of hive products) items. Gift baskets are available year round and can be custom made.
Chinook Honey Company is open year round and group tours are available anytime. Individual tours can be booked from May to October.
