Ken's Honey Bee Farm
Our Bee Farm was started with the idea that we need to take better care of nature and because bees are such an important part of nature we need to be careful about how we treat the little bee. Without bees and a small number of other insects carrying out the important job of pollination 80 percent of our crops would disappear and the price of food would skyrocket. So be kind to the little bee and let them continue to do their job of feeding the world.
If you believe like me that bees and other pollinators are important to our country and our province and feel that you would like to support bee's and beekeepers you can make a donation of any amount to Ken's Honey Bee Farm by clicking the "donate button" above or by coming to the farm and dropping off your donation.
Donate now and help me help the bee's feed the world........thanks.
Do you have a swarm of bees on your property.
A swarm is a large group of bees with a queen looking for a home. There are several reasons honey bees swarm but it mainly comes down to a basic survival instinct where bees reproduce at the colony level thereby creating two or more colonies from one. Bees in a swarm are generally docile and not inclined to sting or attack and will usually leave within a day or two to find a more permanent location. ( Do not attempt to remove the bees yourself unless you are an experienced beekeeper).
1. Kenneth Peters/Beekeeper is available to collect bee swarms anywhere in the Prince and Queens County areas free of charge.
For more information please contact Ken or Corinne Peters (Leave a message if we are not available)
