Alberta’s honey bees are nature’s super-pollinators, collecting nectar from our abundant crops and native plants to produce honey that’s expertly and sustainably harvested by our beekeepers.
It’s a natural business, and a growing one. Alberta’s commercial honey producers manage 25 billion bees, representing 298,000 colonies, to produce more than 40 million pounds of pure honey each year. In fact, Alberta is the #1 honey producer in Canada.
