Is that beets on that hamburger?
Hey Perry, we were talking about your kind at our association's meeting last night. It seems there was a question about how many beekeepers there are in Canada. Someone said, "All of them!". :roll: I never did hear a number though. I told them how tough the Canadian beekeepers were, though! :thumbsup:
They did mention that there were 600,000 hives in Canada. That's a lot of bees!
I had to go to the Canadian Honey Council website to check on those numbers Greg. You're right. Don't know why but I thought there were more hives than that.
There are 230 beekeepers in Nova Scotia and around 19,300 hives.
Its not the number of hives but the honey yield they produce. in s poor dry area 80 lb average in good areas 200+ lb's per hive per year. in 2009 there was an 116 lb average across the country
That sure looks like a heart attack in a sack for sure!!
Should come with a free case of TUMS!
I hope those numbers don't change after Hurricane Sandy passes by (especially the beekeeper numbers). :roll:
