Wildcomb Farm is our dream project. Our honey is small batch, single origin honey giving customers a taste of their own community terroir, from the nectar to the jar and all the steps in between.
Wildcomb Farm strives to be a part of our local food security by providing pollination to both the natural environment and the food we eat. Growing our local honeybee population limits the need of imported bees and the spread of potential diseases and pests.
We currently have beehives located on Roots and Shoots Farm near Masham, QC and Juniper Farm just outside Wakefield, QC. We plan to focus on growing our yards in these two locations this year, and by next year we will be ready to expand further!
If you have a farm or property and would be interested in having our bees on your property in the future please get in touch. We will begin planning for the next season soon!
Mel Weatherhead grew up with a fascination of bees. Bees played an important pollination role on her family's farm and her honeybee education started from a young age. Starting with a beekeeping internship in 2010, Mel began to pursue a more active role as a beekeeper working in Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec and New Zealand.
Mark McConnell is Mel's dedicated partner and an asset to Wildcomb Farm. His passion for honeybees was sparked shortly after moving from the suburbs in Brisbane, Australia to work on an organic farm in Canada and he hasn't looked back. His awesome building skills are key to building the equipment needed, and his attention to detail and perseverance are the cornerstone to Wildcomb Farm's success.
