For us, beekeeping is a hobby. But for the 7,000 beekeepers on family farms foreign honey is leaving a bad taste in their mouth. Canadians produce 75 million pounds of honey a year, but our largest honey packer, Billy Bee, is importing less expensive honey from China and Argentina and blending it with small amounts of Canadian honey in order to still qualify as Great White North sweet stuff.
