Chinook Honey Company started as a beekeeping hobby in 1995 with just two hives on a small acreage south of Calgary, Alberta. For Art Andrews the bees not only pollinated his garden but also provided stress relief from his full time job as an airline pilot. Assisted by his wife Cherie, the tiny apiary quickly expanded.

Since 2007 both Art and Cherie have both been working full time at their Chinook Honey Company β€˜retirement’ jobs. Whether it’s beekeeping, hosting tour groups, bottling mead, working behind the till or in front of a computer, their passion shines through. By keeping the business small and personal every visitor can expect the best service, top quality honey products and a valuable learning experience. Come visit the most unique store in the Alberta foothills!

Hivelights - October 2021

Our fall weather has been lovely so far and the bees are using these last flyable days to forage from goldenrods, thistles or the few flowers that keen gardeners are keeping alive. On warmer days they are also collecting any available resin from conifers and shrubs to produce wonderful propolis. We have written often about propolis - the substance bees use to seal the hive and also sterilize it. But how do they actually make it? And why do we care?
