A family beekeeping farm located in the Québec Laurentian mountain region.

Abeilles de la Colline is a beekeeping farm where a passion for nature and well-being of honeybees aligns with high-quality products of commercial and ecological value. Our beehive and wild-foraged products come directly from the mountain flora of the Laurentians, far from urban and industrial pollution, major roads as well as intensive agriculture. Located on properties in Argenteuil and Pays d’En Haut regions, our bees benefit from natural resources for the production of wildflower honey, honeycomb, beeswax, pollen and propolis. We also offer balsam fir honey, candles, propolis extract and bee nucs, as well as wild-foraged herbs and mushrooms (mint, nettle, chanterelles, chaga, etc.) and mushroom foraging trips in the fall.

Our mission is to pass on our love for honey bees and the environment through high-quality products derived from the hive and the Laurentian forest.

Ecological and Sustainable Values

Our farm takes pride in prioritizing zero-waste and sustainable practices. For example, most of our beekeeping equipment is hand-made using wood and materials generously donated by local organizations and individuals who share similar values. Our beekeeping equipment is never painted to avoid introducing chemicals into the environment and the beehives; instead, we treat the wood with flame as a cleaning and disinfection procedure. As for packaging, not only do we avoid plastic by prioritizing glass, but we are also mindful of the importance of waste reduction and reuse. Consequently, we encourage the community not to discard used glass food jars into the recycling bin but to prioritize their reuse by bringing the used jars to us. We sort them out, sterilize them, change the lid and reuse them.

History and Journey

At our place, the love for bees and honey is passed down from one generation to another, intertwined with our European roots. Having undergone beekeeping training in Quebec, studied biological sciences, and lived in the Laurentian mountains for many years, we naturally developed a curiosity and respect for the environment. It was a combination of these factors that led us to venture into beekeeping, C’est donc au printemps 2016 qu’Abeilles de la Colline a vu le jour avec le but de donner à tout le monde un accès de valeur et de qualité aux produits de la ruche et de la forêt. We started with a few beehives and year after year, with a lot of patience and perseverance, our apiary naturally expanded creating strong colonies adapted to the Nordic mountain climate. Today we pursue our beekeeping journey and share our passion with all who want to taste the essence of nature!
