Bees and farms need each other. It’s that simple.
Bees need the habitat and food found on North Carolina’s rich agricultural lands.
Farmers need the pollination services provided by these avid pollinators to grow up to a third of the crops that we produce.
To provide a safe and healthy environment for these important agricultural workers, beekeepers and farmers need to open up lines of communication that will allow all parties to make informed decisions that will protect and better serve bees and other pollinators.
Working together, we can create a healthier environment for pollinators and help keep agriculture North Carolina’s No. 1 industry.
