Our Story


 Beekeeper man hives grey hair friendly

Fredrich’s Honey is a family run business. Located in beautiful Cedar, 20 minutes south of Nanaimo, the farm has been in operation in the same location since 1966. Brothers, Theo and Erwin, began their beekeeping operation in the late 60s but Theo Sr.’s love of bees began at the tender age of 3 when he wandered between the hives of his neighbour near Odessa, Ukraine. At the age of 14 he began as a beekeeping apprentice in Germany for one of the largest beekeeping operations in the country. Over the years his passion for keeping bees never wavered, even building the family home in the shape of a hexagon!

Theo Jr. and his wife Taylor took over the business in 2010 and continue to operate the business with all family members including 3 generations now living and working on the farm.
