NSBA Cost of Production Tool

In 2023, 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
