Iris Kedmi – Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design

Iris Kedmi

Iris moved from Israel in 1998, relocating to Cape Breton in 2003. She holds a university degree in Business and Marketing, but her real passion is beekeeping and finding new uses for the local wild native plants that can be found growing in Cape Breton. In 2013, Iris founded Bee Happy Farm, hand harvesting, drying, infusing or distilling the plants she finds growing on her organic farm in Big Baddeck, and manufacturing health and body care products from native plants and the by-products of bees.
