There’s a new organization to promote the beekeeping business in Grey and Bruce counties.

The Independent Commercial Beekeepers Organization now has about 25 members.

Simpson says beekeepers in Bruce and Grey are producing up to two million pounds of honey a year…about 30 per cent of Ontario’s total.
