Local honey on sale on-line:

Peterborough Utilities has partnered with Forster Apiary to supply honeybee hives at the Riverview Park and Zoo and Lily Lake Solar Farm. A healthy bee population is important to pollinate plants and sustain ecosystems.

This past year there were 20 beehives at the solar farm and 10 at the zoo. The beekeeper collected more than 2,500 kg of honey! 

Our honey is now available for sale on-line while supplies last. Place an order for curbside pick-up.
