THE HONEY POOL
Hive Sponsorship $220
ApiFarms fully maintains the bee yard pool located in Russell, with vigorous checkups from spring till fall. We evaluate colony health, handle the growth of population and more importantly collect the honey. Every participant will receive a private family visit in our beeyard and receive their portion of the Honey Pool at the end of the season! We guarantee that you'll be receiving a minimum of 6 jars of 500g of local honey and an experience you won't forget!
EDUCATIONAL BEEYARD VISIT
This year we will be offering private visits at our beeyards located in Russell Ontario. These events will be the best opportunity for our supporters to learn about our local bee's, but also to learn about general agriculture. Price will vary depending of the amount of participants. We are also happy to create custom learning experiences.
What is swarming?
Swarming is the process in which a new honey bee colony is formed from an existing colony due to limited space and/or unfavorable circumstances, in which the colony flees to a more preferable shelter. Sometimes, the most convenient shelter for a honey bee colony is not necessarily the most convenient for people. We are available for swarm capture and transport, ensuring they are re-located to our apiary.
