Honey Bees at the Millcroft Inn & Spa!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON – June 4, 2018 – 

Vintage Hotels announced that The Millcroft Inn & Spa has entered into a beehive sharing partnership with the Toronto Bee Rescue. A number of beehives have been relocated to the Millcroft grounds, where they will remain working to pollinate the surrounding area, as well as produce honey that will be used in the kitchen of Headwaters Restaurant and available for purchase.

“The team at the Millcroft is very excited to be involved in a partnership that further connects us to the community and the land” says Bill Cutt, General Manager of the Millcroft Inn & Spa. “This partnership with Toronto Bee Rescue not only helps out the local bees but opens opportunities for us to add yet another terrific locally produced product to our guests. Chef James Buder and his team have embraced the idea and look forward to incorporating it into a number of dishes in our Headwaters Restaurant.”

The Toronto Bee Rescue is a family business operated by Peter Chorabik and Sarah Allinson. Following in the footsteps of 3 previous generations of hobby beekeepers in Peter’s family, Peter and Sarah have fallen in love with the bees and turned a hobby into a family business.

For Peter and his wife Sarah it is all about Seasonal Terroir Honey; Using a Terroir approach to their honey extraction, they provide local honey based on season and location. Harvesting three times a year, Spring, Summer and Fall, each batch will have its own distinct colour and flavours indicative of the changing seasons on the Millcroft grounds and surrounding area.
