About Our Bees

At Semiahmoo Apiaries we specialize in producing honey from local flowers and plants so that you can enjoy all of the natural colour, aroma, flavor and nutrients that nature intended.
The pollen used in making this honey was gathered by our bees in the beautiful Langley, South Surrey and White Rock areas. Enjoy!
