About Us

Planet Bee Honey Farm opened our doors to the public in 1997 in rural Armstrong, B.C.  Lifelong beekeeper Ed Nowek started the business on his 10 acre hobby farm with the goal of educating people about the importance of bees, while sharing with them the numerous health and healing products of the hive.

Today, we continue to pursue Ed’s mission of educating and enlightening visitors to the amazing world of the honeybee at our location in Vernon, B.C.  Through educational tours and our selection of all-natural health and beauty products it is our hope that customers leave with new knowledge of and respect for the amazing honeybee.

As Planet Bee Honey Farm celebrates over 20 years in business, we have recently welcomed a Second Generation of Noweks to continue in our mission of bringing you the best honeybee health products from our farm to your table.

We look forward to your visit – and be prepared to ‘Catch the Buzz’ at Planet Bee!
