So, why are we called WillowBee ?

 

Why are we called WillowBee?   You got the “bee” part based on Tony’s work with the bees. Rosemary grows willow on our property to create baskets, fences and other willow structures for the garden. Willows, especially pussy willows are one of the first nectar and pollen sources for honey bees in the spring time. Thus, a natural combination “WillowBee”.

 

In 2022 our bees will be located at the home farm location on Poth Street in Fenwick, Mingle Hill Farms in St. Anns, and Feeder Flower Farm in Wainfleet. 

 

Other Services and Sales:

Swarm Removals

Have you got a honey bee swarm hanging in a low tree branch,  bush or on the ground ? We can help relocate that swarm to a productive hive. Swarms in nature have a relatively low chance of survival.  If the swarm is easily accessible, there is normally no cost for the removal. Give us a call to see if we are available to collect the swarm. Note, we do not remove bees from structures or buildings (cutouts). 

Honey Sales

Are you interested in selling local Niagara Honey? Are you a local vendor that sells small batch, local and speciality craft made food products? Perhaps WillowBee Apiary is a good fit?
