Happy Rolph's Animal Farm Buzzing This Summer

July 6, 2019

By: William Rowling

Happy Rolph's Animal Farm will be buzzing more than usual this summer.

The City of St. Catharines is partnering with Small Scale Farms to install beehives at Happy Rolph's Animal Farm.

The city says guests are at no more risk of being stung than before.

The hives are being placed on the west side of the pond away from public areas.

It's not the first time the city has supported honey bees.

St. Catharines also planted "pollinator gardens" in the city and was one of the first municipalities to be called a "Bee City".
