Sustainable & Sweet
If you’re in the mood for something sweet, try our honey! We partnered with Toronto Bee Rescue and Ontario Honey Creations to add 24 hives to our grounds. Each year, we produce around 2,400 pounds of sustainably-sourced honey. While we do use it in dishes at our restaurant and in treatments at our spa, it is also available for purchase if you’d like to take a little sweetness home with you.
The colour and flavour of the honey varies depending on the season it is produced due to the different nectar available to the bees. The honey is kept raw and unpasteurized ensuring its natural health benefits remain intact. Millcroft honey can be purchased at the front desk or at the Spa reception desk and makes a perfect souvenir or gift! Small $9.95 or Large $14.95.
Lighter in flavour and colour, Spring Blossom honey comes from early season flowers like crocuses, dandelions and tree blossoms like maple, apple, pear and cherry.
Closest in taste to traditional Ontario honey, the source for Summer Blossom is mainly clover and offers a unique flavour from the mix of flowers on the Millcroft grounds.
Darker and stronger in flavour, rich Fall Blossom honey is produced mainly from goldenrod and asters growing around the property.
