About Our Family

Our family has been involved in the honey business for decades now. We are the second generation of beekeepers in Argentina and proud of our parents’ legacy.

Apicola DANANGIE (our Argentinian company) has become a national leader in our industry. We employ over 75 people, as well as a reference in South America. We thrive on growth, that is why we decided to expand our apiary to Canada.

In 2016

We joined the BC Honey Producers Association training, met Richard and Pat Springborn and continue their path.

In 2017

We found a farm in Okanagan to raise our bees on the banks of the Salmon River and opened Honey Onyx Apiary. A bold decision that we embrace with enthusiasm and optimism.

In 2018

With over 300 beehives and had our first honey crop in the Okanagan. The Honey Barn or Blue Barn was built, a perfect place to fit our growing needs.

As Fall was approaching, we adventured to a lot of Christmas events, we started doing our first beeswax candles and introduced the RAW honey We experienced our first winter, (as did our bees) and we were thrilled to know we can do it!

In 2019

We bought new nucs to get to our goal of managing 400 beehives.

We started doing pollination and were able to crop more honey varieties. As a result, the RAW honey grew to include Clover, Dandelion and Alfalfa. Also, we produced (for the first time) honeycombs. (Will we ever get to the optimum managing techniques to produce honeycombs? That question remains unanswered.)

We updated the packing line with brand new equipment, which allow us to offer a standardized product and cut down the packing times.

We loved attending the Vernon and Salmon Arm Downtown Farmer Markets, and a lot of other events, to get people to know us and share with them our passion. Bee Yours Store in Kelowna opened its doors at the end of the year, it marked the beginning of a new experience in which we have learnt a lot!

We also met a couple of black bears and they taught us to always pay attention to make sure our electric fences are turned on.

In 2020

March 2020, Covid hit and despite its complications around the world, we managed to upgrade our beehive management to over 400 hives!

We did our first pollen harvest in the Okanagan, quite an exciting adventure as bees challenged us a lot!

Since the Health Authorities allowed it, we participated in Salmon Arm Downtown Farmer Market and were happy to connect with the community again.

Our second Bee Yours location was built at the front of our farm in Falkland. We moved the packing line into the new space, so only the honey extraction at the Blue Barn (Our guys were happy to have their own place to mess around). Since the first day the Farm Store opened, we have received so much support from the local community which continues to show us that this is the RIGHT place to BEE.

Certainly, 2020 has been a challenging year but it showed us that together, one step at a time, we can get through almost anything.

Keep in the buzz as we have big plans to fly into this year and beyond.
