Inside the Old Honey Pot — The Henderson Apiaries Carleton Place

Standard

Photos of the old Henderson Apiary. Once upon a time the building was closed forever, and the building sat neglected on the most prestigious street in town– High Street. It is no longer there, and now just a memory.

What is an apiary?  An apiary (also known as a bee yard) is a place where honey bees are kept. Traditionally beekeepers (also known as apiarists) paid land rent in honey for the use of small parcels. Some farmers will provide free apiary sites, because they need pollination, and farmers who need many hives often pay for them to be moved to the crops when they bloom. 

Photos from an Anonymous Photographer from years gone by.

The building was for sale for $220,000, but it was always zoned residential.

Hi Linda. Saw your photos of Henderson Apiaries. I worked as a beekeeper for Cecil and Kay Henderson in 1965. My package included room and board in their home next door (it was also a Guest House for overnight visitors but not a B&B, just accommodation). Photos brought back memories! thanks–Mark Hopkins
