Using the same meticulously crafted recipes that had been tried and tested by our own family for years, Lovebee Products first appeared at the Ridgeway’s farmers’ market in the spring of 2017. After a very warm reception in Ridgeway, we decided to expand into other markets and events throughout the Niagara region, in addition to starting a small lavender farm of about 50 plants.
As people began to experience our natural handcrafted products, we began to receive a surprising amount of encouraging feedback. Customers we’re loving our products just as much as we were! So, we simply decided to keep going and keep growing, and soon a handful of products developed into over fifty!
Since the debut of our little orange tent in Ridgeway (anyone remember that?!), we’ve since had the honour and pleasure of becoming a staple business at many of the region’s most popular events, such as the Handmade Market, the Marshville Heritage Festival and the Ball’s Falls Thanksgiving Festival.
In 2021 we began to travel beyond our region and soon could be found at some of Canada’s most prestigious shows like the One Of A Kind Show in Toronto. While our branding is no longer bright orange and our displays no longer draped in burlap, the heart and mission on Lovebee remains the same!
Growth & Expansion
In November 2022 Lovebee moved from a small renovated cottage in Ridgeway to a much larger space at 44 Jarvis street in Fort Erie. The building on Jarvis would become a base for both small batch manufacturing and a retail store.
On Saturday, February 25th the Lovebee store celebrated its grand opening and opened it doors to the public with regular hours.
Who is Lovebee really?
Simply put, Lovebee Products was born out of a desire to help friends and families just like ours. We struggled to find products and brands with the level of transparency we desired. Furthermore, it was extremely difficult to find Canadian made products that were natural, wholesome, effective AND affordable! So — where we saw a great need, we decided to help fill the gap by creating a solution.
Lovebee products contain natural, organic, botanical ingredients from vetted, trusted (often local) suppliers and are lovingly handcrafted in small batches in the Niagara region of Ontario!
Lovebee is currently operated by my husband and I along with a small (yet amazing) team of people (and of course, our little Willow & Eden bees). We are just as passionate as the day we began (perhaps more!) and are dedicated to creating wholesome products for every age and stage of life.
Thank you for choosing Lovebee Products and supporting Canadian artisan businesses!
Love Khaili, Tim, Willow, Eden & the extended Lovebee family!
