Babe’s Honey property for sale

House, outbuilding, land listed at $1.135 million

The property that housed Babe’s Honey Farm since the 1940s is now on the market for $1.135 million.

The home, outbuilding and land included in the court-ordered sale are located at the corner of Oldfield and Walton roads.

Babe’s went into receivership in February following the December arrest of owner Mark Pitcher, of Pitcher & Associates Public Accountants Inc. Pitcher was accused of seven counts of fraud over $5,000, totaling $956,945.

It is alleged that between April 1, 2004 and May 19, 2010, Pitcher told clients they owed money to the Receiver General of Canada and used the funds to finance either Babe’s Honey Farm or his accounting firm.

On May 23, Abbotsford’s Joiner Sales Corp. won a bid to take possession of Babe’s assets – from tractors to honey – which were completely liquidated during a public auction June 29.
