At Backed By Bees, their beekeeping practices are straightforward: regenerative, ethical, organic within the hive, and unequivocally sustainable.
Backed By Bees is an award winning Meadery and Apiary, known for quality, trustworthy local raw honey, bee pollen, propolis, honey soda, honey wine (known as mead) and local farm products made with the honey they produce. Established in 2019, they continue to innovate and create new products to meet consumer needs using 100% Ontario honey that has not been adultered, blended or cut, ensuring you get the highest quality honey products you deserve.
Backed By Bees started with two guys, some bees and an upcycled yellow shipping container on Appleby Line in Burlington, Ontario. The founders - a Meadmaker and a Beekeeper - had a desire to work with pollinators and the products of pollination to help sustain and increase local biodiversity, all while serving the community with quality local honey products. It was through this desire to connect people to nature that Honey Soda was born.
Realizing that honey produced a great tasting, lower sugar soda beverage that has a positive impact on environmental biodiversity was a win-win. More cans consumed means more plants are being pollinated while we get a healthier soda product that is better for us.
