Harmony Honey from FortWhyte Farms

Working hand-in-wing with honeybees to enrich the lives of our customers and communities by providing inspiring experiences, empowering education, and sweet wholesome products. Harmony Honey currently maintains approx. 20 hives all located within FortWhyte Alive.

Swedish Dishcloths

These natural dishcloths are durable, fast drying and incredibly absorbent – each cloth absorbs up to 20 times its own weight in liquid! This multi-use cloth can be used in place of a sponge, washcloth or paper towels, and is perfect for use in the kitchen, bathroom and on most surface areas in your home or office.

Meaningful Jewellery

Local metalsmith Krista Reid is championing the return of the lost-wax casting method, one pendant at a time. Reid has been handcrafting jewellery since the ’80s, using this ancient technique to carve wax molds and create intricate three-dimensional pieces out of precious metals, nearly half of which are recycled.

Valentine’s Dinner at the Buffalo Stone Cafe

A cosy date night in the woods.

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with a romantic three-course dinner in the beautiful setting of FortWhyte Alive. Bundle up and enjoy a romantic skate on the lake or try out the Richardson Rrrun toboggan slide before and after your dinner. We’ll have the fire going outside to keep you cosy while enjoying a cup of cocoa or coffee.

Be sure to bring your own skates. Reservations required.
