Not only do we see the positive benefits for the environment as a result of bee keeping, but there are also the many products that can be sought from this agriculture.

The main product, of course, is honey! Honey not only sells well for the farmer, but it also has health benefits. A prime example is how it can help to counter hay fever; provided the honey is consumed in the area where it is produced, it helps to enhance natural immunity to the local pollen. Bee keeping has traditionally been used alongside regular crops as it helps to:

  • pollinate crops,
  • increase crop yields,
  • improve the quality of produce.

These benefits also apply to the surrounding countryside as the bees help to pollinate and increase seed production of wild vegetation.

Bee keeping is a highly important agricultural activity, not only for the delopment and growth of small scale rural farmers, it is also a key factor in the productivity of local crops as well as the local environment.

Bee keeping is an ideal source of extra income for rural farmers looking to increase the efficiency in production of their land with minimal investment.

Furthermore, we can harvest and utilise the beeswax, pollen, Propilis, bee venom and royal jelly. These are used in all parts of our daily lives; in production of other goods through to medical uses.

Bee keeping is undeniably an essential to agriculture, helping to maintain and encourage growth of vegetation while providing even the small scale farmers a chance to develop.
