CREEKBEND FARM

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.

Their love of beekeeping has become a family affair and their three children play an important role in the hard, complex work of assessing and maintaining the health of the hives as well as collecting, extracting, filtering, creaming, and packing honey.

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.

“The bees have taught our family a thing or two about our planet and sustainability. We cannot take anything for granted, and must work to protect the land that we live on and the creatures that share it with us.”

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.
