At Shoresh, our products are the delicious result of our deep commitment to protecting our pollinators through hands-on, nature-based Jewish education and activism.
Shoresh At Bela Farm
Bela Farm is Shoresh’s rural home for sustainable, land-based Judaism. This 100-acre farm is home to Shoresh’s apiary, Bee Sanctuary, and native reforestation efforts.
Bela Farm gives us the opportunity to offer deep, immersive experiences for land-based Jewish learning and living, creating for participants sustained connections with self, community, and the earth.
Bela Farm has been a site of human activity for 15,000 years. In the spirit of gratitude and allyship, we acknowledge that Bela Farm is situated on the traditional territory of the Wendat, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Anishinabek Nation, as well the Petun and the Neutral First Nations.

Our Pricing Philosophy
Shoresh’s Bela’s Bees Honey is more than just a product – it is the delicious result of our deep commitment to supporting our pollinators through hands-on education and activism. The cost of our honey reflects not just the liquid gold inside the jar, but also the incredible investment of time, energy, and resources that go into planting diverse pollinator habitats AND facilitating meaningful educational experiences for community members around the vital role pollinators play in supporting sustainable food systems, ecosystems, and Jewish life.
100% of the proceeds from our sales go directly towards maintaining our 4-acre Bee Sanctuary so that we can take care of the bees that take care of us!
Is Bela's Bees Raw Honey Kosher?
Yes! Shoresh's Bela's Bees Raw Honey is 100% pure and unpasteurized and therefore does not require kosher certification. AND...here is a Letter of Endorsement from our friends at the Kashruth Council of Canada.
