Mission Statement: To provide quality pollination, produce quality honey, and make the best hive products available. And to raise awareness of honey for good health.
Janine and I started off with a small grain farm close to Eatonia, Saskatchewan. The bees started as a hobby, then a passionate side line to the struggling grain farm. Running 300 honey bee colonies from a 24x24 car garage with no running water. Janine said " I did bees just to get out of driving the tractor". ? I've heard later in life that there were more than a few neighbors that bet on how long before I lost the family farm. We now are 4600 colonies of honey bees mostly for pollination. We produce about 700 barrels of honey, two tons of wax and produce 2000 queens annually for our own use. We can extract about 10 barrels a day when things keep running.
