Le Château Frontenac

At Fairmont Le Château Frontenac in Quebec, four queen bees live in hives in the Chef's rooftop garden. The honey is harvested three times a year and used in special honey-based menus (for banquets) and select dishes in the fine dining restaurant, Le Champlain. The hotel also has a pollinator bee hotel on site that features the iconic copper roofing found at many Fairmont properties in Canada.

IN NUMBERS

70,000 honeybees living in four beehives produce 650 pounds of honey per year, depending on the weather.
