Oaknook Honey Products Ltd is a family owned, commercial honey producing operation.  The company began in 1974 with 2 hobby colonies under the care of Hilliard and Pat Yakimishen.  Like many founding beekeepers, their interest in bees and their drive to produce quality, Natural Pure Honey blossomed.  

Today, Oaknook Honey Products Ltd is managed by Hilliard and Pat Yakimishen and by their two sons, Todd (B.Sc., Past President of the Manitoba Beekeepers Association) and Ryan (B.Sc.Eng., M.Sc.).  The company is now busy caring for over 4000 colonies and in doing so provides a source of employment in Manitoba‚Äôs Parkland.  Oaknook Honey Products Ltd has expanded to offer a variety of bulk and packed-honey products including natural pure honey, bee pollen, and comb-honey.  The company has expanded into raw-propolis production, wooden-ware bee supply manufacturing, and a national supplier of certified drums and container solutions for honey.

Oaknook Honey Products Ltd has been a Canadian supplier of quality Chilean queens and package bees since 2007.  Our devotion to bee quality is what drives us to source quality stock for Canadian beekeepers.

Our business is Natural Pure Honey.  For nearly 50 years, Oaknook Honey Products Ltd has been commercially producing high quality honey, delivering it straight from the bee to you.  Over the years, Oaknook Honey Products Ltd has grown to recognize the importance of a quality product and the care required to deliver it.  "Great tasting honey", as many have described it, is a result of meticulous bee management and superior cleanliness of our hive equipment.  

Oaknook's honey is batch processed the old fashioned way, retaining all the delicate flavors and nutritional goodness of pure honey.  This is our secret, and it forms the foundation of all our Natural Pure Honey products.  It's our goal to provide a nutritious product that has a pleasant, sweet-smooth taste.  As many of our clients are repeat customers, they all agree that Oaknook's Natural Pure Honey tastes good and its good for you...the perfect combination!  

Dedication to quality is our commitment.  As a government inspected establishment, we are proud of our "AAA" achievement in honey processing and our ability to maintain this rating through our quality control program guided by HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) .

We are proud to announce our True Source certification which ensures that our honey is ethically sourced and true to its natural pure quality!
