The Province of Ontario defines agritourism as “those farm-related tourism uses, that promote the enjoyment, education or activities related to the farm operation, including limited accommodation such as a bed and breakfast". Agritourism businesses can include (but are not limited to) on-farm retail, farm tours, accommodations such as bed and breakfasts, or recreation activites such as horseback riding. Oro-Medonte is a Farm Fresh Community, we are a rural municipality and agriculture is an important part of the natural and cultural history and our future.

My goal is to take great care of my own hives as naturally as possible. I extract the honey manually gravity straining the bee bits out and into jars within 48 hours, preserving all the great stuff that is in honey All the honey is from my own hives, so there is a limited supply. This is honey from the hive to the jar with minimal intervention. Find our products at local markets and events around the region. Visit Beamish Honey's website.
