Special Events & Farmers' Markets

Many say beekeeping is an art, and a solitary pursuit. While this is indeed true, we also believe it’s important to stay connected, share knowledge and support one another. Plus, perhaps learn a thing or two. Here are some events and markets that we are involved with, and may be of interest to you.

APIMONDIA is the International Federation of Beekeepers’ Associations. Its major objective is to facilitate the exchange of information and discussions by organizing Congresses and Symposia where beekeepers, scientists, honey-traders, agents for development, technicians and legislators meet to listen, discuss and learn from one another. Apimondia meetings are fabulous events that offer great opportunities to learn about all the aspects of the beekeeping world. During these meetings, from morning until late evening, participants explore various exhibits and learn about cutting edge research from all parts of the world.

community bee keepers organization

Bee Natural Caretakers is a community group of passionate stewards and hive hosts who are committed to supporting and participating in natural and sustainable beekeeping. We welcome part-timers, beginners, weekenders, students, hobbyists and/or anyone who wants to learn more about this fascinating insect. What can we do to preserve, protect and promote our bees in this area we call home?

As a group of treatment-free, ‘close-to-organic’ bee caretakers we rely on observation and natural practices to keep our bees thriving rather than using pesticides, chemicals or toxic treatments of any kind.

We will continue to grow as more and more people discover the enjoyment and worth of encouraging our feral (wild) honeybees and our over 400 species of local native bees. Our goal is to do right by the bees so they can return the favour. We typically meet in Mulmur, ON, south of Creemore.
