Munro Honey in Alvinston will be “buzzing” with visitors Saturday.

The businesses is hosting an open house to celebrate its 100th anniversary.

Owner John Bryans says there will be tours, tastings and activities for children between 10am and 4pm, with a bee beard competition around 1pm.

Bryans says it’s certainly something you don’t get to see every day.

Munro Honey was founded in 1914 by Warren Munro, who collected a swarm of honeybees in the nearby village of Napier and took them home to Alvinston to care from them.

John’s father Howard Bryans purchased the business in 1958 after Warren Munro died in a car crash in 1956.
