Melissa came by beekeeping after randomly picking up a book on bees. Inspired, she continued her learning, eventually getting her first hive in 2010. Her love of the bees, and honey grew from there resulting in her company Mellifera Bees, which borrows its name from the Latin “Apis Mellifera”, or “honey-bearing bee,”. The name Melissa means “honey bee” in Greek,which feels like a perfect fit.
Mellifera Bees produces distinctive, hand-crafted honey infusions of exceptional quality. Each jar contains un-filtered honey harvested from happy hives in neighbourhoods not so far from where you live, across the Lower Mainland and British Coloumbia. Suffused with a rich bouquet of aromatic flavours, the honey’s unique character is produced from the wild wanderings of Mellifera bees and enhanced with a delicate blend of spices or fruit. Each ingredient is chosen for quality and freshness and sourced exclusively from small, independently owned British Columbia companies specializing in certified Organic, Fair Trade comestibles.WEBSITE
