This episode of What’s the Buzz with ATTTA Beekeeping Podcast reflects back to simpler times of beekeeping in the Atlantic region. We talk to well-known local beekeeper Fletcher Colpitts about early days in beekeeping during times of significantly less pest and disease pressures. Our talk includes a brief history of the pollination industry in eastern Canada. We move through the 40 years of Fletcher’s beekeeping career towards a discussion of what the future might hold for our region’s beekeepers. Fletcher draws on his experience as a third-generation apiarist, New Brunswick Chief Apiary Inspector and a lifetime of thoughtful beekeeping to provide a unique insight into our industry.
