Providing Everything You Need
Pollination provides farmers with the opportunity to improve the quality of pollination within their crops. Did you know that bees help set the early vigorous blossoms? The greater number of bees that visit your crop, the higher quality and increased pounds per acre in produced fruit. Our native bees alone cannot be relied upon year after year for yielding a successful crop. . Pollination occurs in the early spring months, late April until June, depending on the variety of crop.
For the past 15 years, we have delivered honey bees for pollination to several different organizations;
• Thunder Beach Berry Farm, Lafontaine
• Red Prince by the Botden family, Thornbury • Al Ferri and Sons, Collingwood
• Iroquois Cranberry Growers, Bala and more...
We are registered with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA), our hives are inspected by a registered Apiary Inspector. We require land owners to complete a pollination contract as well as payment in full before or on the day of delivery.
Do you have a swarm or nest of honey bees on your property? Before you call, please make sure that they really are honey bees. We will not remove any native species unless the nest is in a location too close to human activities (door frames, children’s play area,). There will be a service fee for removing native bees or wasp’s nests. Swarming is a natural part of the honey bee’s life cycle. Honey bees in a swarm are generally not aggressive unless they are being agitated. If you have a swarm of bees that can be easily removed don’t hesitate to call right away, a swarm may only stay in that area for only 1 to 2 days.
Not only are honey bees an amazing insect but they also provide us with many edible treats that we are more than happy to share with you. Click here to peruse our products page. Can't find what you're looking for? Send us a message!
Looking after the bees is an important job, but we believe that the most important part of our job is education! What better way to learn about bees and their keepers than to have a beekeeper teach you. We have had the pleasure of speaking at many different venues;
Farm Fresh Food Fest, Georgian Bay Festival
Wye Marsh Wildlife Center, The Villa and more...
We made presentations at local schools, clubs and even managed to get on tv a couple times (“I Love My Job” TVOkids)! Educating the public about the importance of our honey bees and native bees is just one aspect of the large web of knowledge associated with beekeeping. We can accommodate all ages and can even have your presentation done in French.
