The Hive & Hearthstone

The Sugar Fairies are hard at work

The Hive & Hearthstone is a small apiary and wood-fired ‘breadery’ (yes, they have made breadery a word), offering fresh honey, artisan bread and an array of fresh in-season produce. But, once you visit you realize that this amazing little spot is so much more than just that.

Owned by an outgoing and welcoming Newfoundlander, this charming apiary welcomes with personality and the most ooey-gooey delicious honey you’ve ever tasted. The honey bees are affectionately referred to as The Sugar Fairies and they are lovingly cared for. The honey that’s produced is sold raw and unpasteurized to keep all the goodness intact.
