Creating a buzz. That's what Clovermead Bees & Honey know how to do very well. Christy Hiemstra used an innovative marketing strategy to create additional value from the honey they produce. It has raised public awareness of the importance of honeybees in Ontario food production by educating and entertaining farm guests about the fascinating world of honeybees. The operation produces value-added honey spreads and offers a variety of interactive farm displays and tours for school groups and visitors.
