Mankind’s oldest sweetener, in its purest form.
This isn’t your typical honey, it’s something special. Every jar is 100% natural and unpasteurized, with Chilliwack wildflower’s nectar and its bright, floral taste in each hand-packed jar. You can feel good about purchasing Chilliwack River Valley’s honey, who go to great lengths to implement business practices that are healthy for the environment and the local community. This golden honey stands on its own, but we love it stirred in Granville Island Teas, slathered on toast, or drizzled on brie, blue cheese, or goats cheese.
ABOUT CHILLIWACK RIVER VALLEY HONEY
Pure, natural honey, built on friendship and community.
Chilliwack River Valley Honey was started by the Coutts family and their bee farm, situated along one of the Lower Mainland’s best kept secrets - the Chilliwack River. Current owner, Richard Pye, was a longtime close friend of the Coutts when an unexpected tragedy hit, leaving it up to Richard and his family to take on the business. In an effort to continue his friend’s legacy, Richard enrolled in the Bee Master’s course at Simon Fraser University, and has been running Chilliwack River Valley Honey ever since.
For nearly three decades, Chilliwack River Valley Honey has been a staple of the Granville Island Market, offering its patrons high quality bee products that some have considered to be the “best honey in the valley”. For Richard, the community connections that he has developed are a happy side effect of the job, with generations of family and friends dropping by his booth regularly for a friendly chat. He is proud and honored to carry on his friends’ legacy in the form of building a community of honey-loving fans and continuing to provide that sweet, sticky nectar to visitors of the Public Market.
