Saskatchewan Food Trivia - Honey
Saskatchewan bees are more prolific than bees just about anywhere else in North America: an average 195 pounds of honey per hive. In comparison, the average honey production in Alberta is about 140 pounds per hive; in Canada it's about 130 pounds per hive. The bees of Saskatchewan are so prolific because of the long days and the vast fields of flowering canola and flax.
