Cost of Production Tool Roll Out

This year the NSBA Board was tasked with creating a Tool to assist Nova Scotia Beekeepers scale up their businesses and interests to help address the demand in the province for quality pollination services supporting our Agricultural sector.

The objective was to develop an interactive Cost of Production Model for NS beekeepers to help new entrants, and existing beekeepers determine the economic feasibility and profitability of entering the industry or business expansion

With assistance from the team of Matthew Boland, of the Saint Mary’s School of Commerce, this has now been realized. 

There will be an In-Person session with break out opportunities at the NSBA/NSDA AGM in February 2024. This event will allow personal one on one Q&A sessions and trials with Matthew Boland onsite.

This tool will be downloadable from the NSBA Website AFTER the initial Introduction. Additional information will be available shortly.
