Georgian Bay Honey and Historic Victorian Brick House
Gabriola & Geoff Jennen will be our hosts. We will meet in the large
Honey House with its display of antique honey pails, etc.
There will also be an opportunity to visit the Victorian house. The
house was built by James Witherspoon with bricks that were brought from
Owen Sound by horse and sled. He purchased the property in 1877. The
land was taken from the crown in 1862 by Robert Beaty. Seasoned
beekeepers, Gabriela Berger and Geoffrey Jennen, operate Georgian Bay
Honey just outside of Owen Sound. Both have honey in their blood.
Gabriela, a Swiss native, comes from a line of three generations of
beekeepers and Geoffrey, who kept bees with his father as a hobby when
young, from two generations.
Location: Georgian Bay Honey, 201248 ON-21, Owen Sound (about 8 miles from Owen Sound on Highway 21.
