Natural honey is popular in Canada
Raw honey contains all the antioxidants and good bacteria that processed honey lacks. The bulk of what we buy in retail stores is processed while that at farm gates is raw unpasteurized honey.
Natural honey is exempted from high processing heat that kills antioxidants, hence its benefits. This is why in Canada, people like to buy honey at wholesale, directly from beekeepers.

Natural honey varieties in Canada
Though bee honey is the ultimate product in this category, here are the top 3 varieties in Canada:
1. Alfalfa Honey
Current price wholesale: US$19.81 per kg for 60 ibs (27.2 kg) purchases
Current price retail: US$26.98 per kg
A product of the harvested nectar of the purple alfalfa flowers that bees pollinate, alfalfa honey is among the healthiest natural honeys. It has antimicrobial and anti-oxidant abilities that make it special to health-conscious honey collectors.
2. Clover Honey
Current price wholesale: from CA$9.9 (US$7.23) per kg for over 3 kg bulk purchases
Current price retail: CA$24 (US$17.53) per kg
Many sources think this is the leading natural honey in all of North America. It is for a reason: it comes from the nectar of bee-pollinated clover flowers. Honey farmers love it because of its ease of harvesting while consumers go for its tea-sweetening qualities and health.
3. Bee Honey and Fireweed Honey
Current price wholesale: CA$9.9 (US$7.23) per kg for over 15 kg bulk honeybee honey purchases
Current price retail: CA$19 per 12 oz (CA$55.41/US$40.43 per kg) of fireweed honey and CA$16.50 ($12.04) per kg for bee honey
Fireweed honey is rare and only available via specialty dealers because it comes from plants that thrive in Alaska. Bee honey is readily accessible in all prairie provinces of Canada via beekeepers. While bee honey is clear and viscous, fireweed honey is syrupy and golden.
Other natural honeys include pure buckwheat honey and blueberry blossom honey.
