Sydney de Matos
After graduating from the University of Victoria in B.C., Sydney along with her husband, Jonny, moved to a small farm in Watsons Corners to pursue the dream of a slow life. What started as a hobby with two hives, has grown into a commercial operation, expanding into queen breeding, raising solitary bees, multiple wholesale locations, and a beekeeping supply store.
We look forward to what the future has in store for us next!

Jonny's superpower is believing he can do anything.
Jumping back to 2017, he decided to be a beekeeper. After moving our family back to his home community, the dream become a reality. He now runs a commercial beekeeping operation, and is a registered queen breeder involved in the Ontario Resistant Honey Bee Selection Program (ORHBS). He is also actively involved in the local beekeeping association, Lanark County Beekeepers Association, encouraging others to join in his passion.
