Norfolk County provides a unique opportunity to collaborate and connect with local businesses. Being a diverse agricultural tourism area, we tap into many thriving local businesses to provide solutions, create partnerships and fill a need in each other’s businesses.
This held true when we realized in order to supply enough
fruit for cider & grape production our orchard & vineyard
would need some help from a very tiny solution. A local
within the vineyard and orchard. Benefits are full circle. A
nice steady honey supply for our winery family and all the
pollen one little bee can consume from our vineyard and
orchard. With the addition of planting wildflowers around
the property, we are feeding these bees, while they take
very good care of our farm.
After expanding the vineyard to over 3 times its size in 2017
we knew an IPM (integrated pest management) system was
needed. This created an opportunity to introduce more
chickens to the property. We also partnered with the ALUS
Program who have provided blue bird, brown bat and
kestrel habitats to help to create an ecosystem approach at
managing our pests.
