The Bee Farmer’s Diary

I have always looked out for diverse ways on how I can contribute positively to my society. I believe we can only show our love by giving a smile, a hand or voice. It’s so magical to see the cute bee produce the sweetest and nutritious food “honey”. My passion for beekeeping grew when I discovered the amazing way bees produced honey, its health benefits and how it contributes to our green environment. In my pursuit to learn more, I have read several books and consulted local and professional beekeepers. My first visit to the farm was a hands-on experience on setting up hives for the bees.

In the pursuit to learn more, I have read some books and consulted local and professional beekeepers. I joined the Lethbridge Bee Enthusiast Club, Alberta, Canada. It a monthly meet-up with a group of beekeepers, prospective beekeepers and those enthusiastic about bees to share ideas and discuss how we can contribute to society.

We are dedicated to increasing the consumption of natural honey products due to its health benefits and encouraging beekeeping.  Ohemaa Honey is currently working with local beekeepers to produce honey and to diversify into other hive products such as royal jelly, and propolis and increase our production for export, farm gate sales and improve packaging and promotional activities.  We are a social enterprise that strives to raise income for rural farmers.

Our vision is to make Ohemaa Honey part of the household recipe. We have developed a training program for local beekeepers.

To increase business profit and build off-farm investment strategies such as educational/ consulting services, floral gardens, and others.
