Meet the Kittilsens…
First generation Bee Keepers, Paul and Lori Kittilsen, have a passion for bees.
Paul, a Bee Keeper of 29 years, first discovered this fascination through a part time job at the age of 16. By 18 he was keeping his own bees, a hobby that eventually would grow into a full time commercial farm. Today, the Kittilsens business is based on pollination to the blueberry industry and the production of honey and beeswax.
Paul and Lori take a great amount of pride in their daily operations. “We are very proud of the employees we have. They have learned to work as a team to efficiently keep the bees healthy and productive” says Paul.
When asked what they would most like to share with their consumers, the Kittilsens replied “We would love to have people understand and appreciate how significant bees are in the production of their food.”
Paul and Lori happily reside in Debert, Nova Scotia with their 3 children.
