A Little About the

Northern Bee Auction

Founded in 2012 by Peter Harris, the Northern Bee Auction was created as a way of bringing local beekeepers together as well as redistributing bees & used bee related equipment. Fast forward 5 years & the Auction has grown to the annual event it is today, attracting sellers from all over the country, that are seeking to generate revenue from surplus equipment, or harvest the fruits of their labour selling colonies. As well as buyers looking for a lower cost introduction to beekeeping through the purchase of used equipment. For many, the Auction has also become a large social event in the beekeepers calendar, exposing new, less experienced beekeepers to seasoned professionals, who are as always happy to help.

In July of 2016, Peter suffered a severe stroke, affecting the entire right side of his body, and rendering him unable to speak. While his health continues to slowly improve, we have decided to continue the annual auction, as a separate entity, and donate all proceeds to providing equipment for Peter’s recovery.
