The Bee Shop is a Toronto-based store that can supply all your honey and bee product needs. Our principal beekeeper; Oliver Couto, is one of the instructors of the introductory beekeeping course at the Toronto Botanical Garden and at The Bee Shop (where both adult and youth beekeeping programs are available). Former co-chair of the Toronto Beekeepers Collective and longstanding member of the Ontario Beekeepers Association. Oliver was also on the Pollinator Advisory Committe for the City of Toronto and a contributor to the City's popular Bees of Toronto book.
We are distributors of Dutchman's Gold. We have been involved in beekeeping for over 22 years. We promote urban beekeeping and give talks on Apitherapy which is healing with bee products. We hold monthly beeswax candle making workshops.
We are currently a sponsor in the production of the The Sacred Bee film series that significantly explores the spiritual side of the honeybees.
With our rooftop apiary we are a registered Ontario Farm and contribute with our beekeeping and bee themed eductional services to help ensure the nation's food supply.
Visits and tours, to see our honeybee themed mural and art from The Sacred Bee film series as well as educational activity apiary visits by schools and daycares are welcome.
