Daniel and Tracy Séguin were born to farm! In 1998 they founded their 126 acre CreekBend Farm in Lavigne, Ontario and haven’t looked back!
While growing strawberries during the early years, they invited a friend to bring over some bees to help with pollination, and were stung by the apiculture bug.
Although the strawberry fields have long since been ploughed under, they have been beekeeping ever since with their current apiary flourishing to their current 100+ hives.
Lessons learned are reinforced by the occasional stinging reminder that these living colonies are to be handled with a gentle respect as an important part of a co-operative partnership.
Although honey is a sweet reward of the hard work of beekeeping, pollination of other foods grown in the community is the real work of the bees, and that puts them in danger.
In order to mitigate risk to all bees, a well-balanced environment and rotation of crops throughout the seasons is important. Sharing experience and knowledge with other local farmers, especially with regards to responsible pesticide application and the acceptance of indigenous pollinator plants is essential to enhancing both the native bee and honeybee populations.
