APIVERTE

Small-batch artisan honey harvested from our custom-designed EZHouses throughout the Gatineau Hills in Quebec.

Honey, Hives & Houses

APIVERTE’s goal is to #savethebees through innovative habitat design, species propagation and pollinating the 5/105 corridor of the Gatineau Hills.

We design and build the EZSystem; EZHouses and EZHives that make beekeeping easier and more accessible to all. We sell CSA-style honey shares, gift collections and honey by the jar, case, pail or comb. Our honey is micro-harvested and geo-located to the exact place and time it was harvested, it’s summer in a jar! We conduct research and development activities on bee health and habitat throughout the year to keep bees from the brink of extinction.

How it all happened

How it all happened

In the Fall of 2018, we took the spark of an idea and embarked on a journey to make it a reality. APIVERTE is the combination of Mike’s technical and manufacturing know-how with Sandra’s design and marketing prowess. Through our creativity, experience and passion for apiculture, we are engaging more people to support the bees in their struggle for survival, creating an easier beekeeping style and sharing the sweet rewards with our community. 

Fast forward to the spring of 2020 and we are poised to introduce more than 5,000,000 honey bees to the 5/105 corridor between Chelsea and Low Quebec.
