Nova Scotia Honey - HOME

Our bee farm also provides commercial pollination services to fruit growers across Nova Scotia.

In May, most of our beehives pollinate the orchards of apples, pears, plums, and cherries in the Annapolis Valley.

In June, we transport the bee hives to wild blueberry fields across the province as well as strawberry, raspberry, and high bush blueberries in the Valley.

Midsummer, we move some hives to cranberries, squash, pumpkins, cucumbers, and sunflowers. The rest of the colonies are set into clover fields and wildflower meadows for honey gathering.

Honey Bees at work pollinating wild blueberries

Bees are moved at night when all the workers are home in their hives. Here 160 bee hives are arriving in a blueberry field.

Bees collect pollen from flowers for protein to feed their young. They carry the pollen in the pollen baskets on their hind legs, seen here.

To collect pollen, we put a mesh pollen trap in the entranceway. As the bees go through the mesh, some of the pollen is knocked from their baskets and drops into this collector.
Different flowers have different colours of pollen, so the mixture of colours may change depending on the season.After collecting the bee pollen we clean and dry it for sale as a health food.
