Below, I am with my bees. I presently manage approximatley
300 beehives from the City of Pickering to Hastings County. Over the next few years I'd like to increase my bee population to a minimum of 1000
beehives. Bees play a major role in the food chain not only do they provide many varieties of food for humans, they also
play a role in the foodchain for many varieties of wild animals and birds: bees pollinate many trees, bushes, and wild
flowers that produce other fruits and nuts that we don't eat but birds, bears, mice, rabbits, horses, foxes, and
many more animals depend on. Keeping bees alive in our society enhances everything around us. Support locally produced
