Beekeeping Suppliers in Ontario

I have to say when I first started to meet beekeepers I was surprised to discover how willing they are to help.

Get us together in a room and the conversation will go on and on and on. There's a shared passion about bees that just gets us buzzing.

Another great thing about beekeepers are great beekeeping suppliers.

We have a lot of really good ones in both Canada and the USA. Some have been in business for generations. Below are links to lists of beekeeping suppliers in Ontario. (Why recreate the list since it's already on the web?)http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/food/inspection/bees/info_suppliers.htm

USA Suppliers: Two well known companies are Maxantindustries.com and Dadant.com. Both are well respected and have been in business for years. Dadant has an on-line catalogue. They ship to Canada too.
