Bringing business, agriculture, arts and the community together to support the bees

Apiverte is the shared vision of a husband and wife team – Sandra and Michael. Nestled in the municipality of La Peche and stretching along the 5/105 corridor from Chelsea to Low Quebec, Apiverte has already brought more than 5,000,000 honey bees to the region. 

The Gatineau Hills provides the ideal landscape for native and managed pollinators to thrive. Through research and development, design and build, Apiverte has developed a new style of honey bee habitat that is easier on both the bees and the beekeeper called the EZSystem. 

By partnering with local farms, businesses and artists we are engaging the public in our efforts to raise awareness and interest in the health and longevity of the honey bee.

Apiverte is different

Sandra and Mike each bring entirely new skillsets to beekeeping making their business approach unique. From marketing and manufacturing to design and build Apiverte is trying to reinvent the honey beesness. Apiverte harvests honey often, in small batches small and only harvest from a single location at a time. Taste the subtle differences from one end of the 5/105 corridor to the other, capturing a time and place in a jar of honey. 

Research and Development

Apiverte is committed to finding better ways to care for our honey bees. Through our new EZSystem we are testing new ways to address habitat, overwintering, pest control, and predators.
