The Stratford Ecological Center Apiary

We are dedicated to increasing the understanding of the vital role all pollinators play in our food systems and ecosystems. Our programs address especially the roles of native bees, honeybees and their natural habitats. As a working farm, Stratford operates honeybee hives offering unique educational opportunities to beekeepers and non-beekeepers alike. Honey produced by Stratford bees is available to purchase.
