Modern beekeeping requires beekeepers to keep track of a lot of information to meet current regulations for bee biosecurity and food safety. One of the challenges they face is sorting through extensive documents that they are sometimes overwhelming and confusing. The Canadian Beekeepers’ Practical Handbook to Bee Biosecurity and Food Safety is a new tool to help beekeepers keep track of the information needed to meet current regulations.

2009_Agribition_4photo_frameTNYWe we've received an overwhelming response from both booths at Agribition!

Its great to hear that more and more people are interested in beekeeping with honey bees.

So what's next? How do you get started? Where do you get bees? Is there any support or help when you need it? Where do I get equipment? How much does it cost? What do I do with bees in the winter?
