About Backyard Bee Works
Backyard Bee Works is an urban pollination business founded in 2007 by husband and wife team Mark and Shelley McAlpine. With personal hives located in backyards throughout Guelph’s historic St. Patricks Ward (The Ward), Backyard Bee Works honeybees forage amongst the many fruit trees, local gardens and wild flowers found within the City of Guelph. The nectar gathered by these industrious honeybees is soon transformed into the Backyard Bee Works famously delicious (very) local, honey. Our limited-run honey is raw (unpasteurized), hand extracted and bottled.
