The Acadia Community Farm is pleased to partner with the Acadia Beekeeping Club and the Department of Biology in 2017 to host a research and teaching bee hive on site.

Did you know that bees play an important role in agriculture, pollinating plans such as blueberries, apples and more?

Acadia students are welcome to join the Acadia Beekeeping Club. Volunteers can train to become “Queens” or “Workers”. Queens help manage the hive and handle bees and workers provide assistance to the Queens.
