When we decided to take up beekeeping, we had no idea where this new adventure would take us. It sounded so exotic. We had visions of sourcing bees from all over the world. Little did we know it would lead us right around the corner from a strip mall in Mississauga. Kind of a buzz kill, right? Not really. We bought up our first hives from a guy we met over the Internet. Which isn’t nearly as shady as it sounds. We left his backyard with 2,000 bees and didn’t have to deploy pepper spray once.
