Alberta Buzzing & Lee Townsend
Home / About

My name is Lee Townsend & I am a commercial beekeeper from Stony Plain, Alberta, Canada.

Alongside my father we manage 3,100 colonies strictly for honey production and have been doing so as TPLR Honey Farms Ltd. since 1979.

I don’t proclaim to be an expert or a bee guru, I’m just a beekeeper that wants to help people understand what it is our industry does.

There is so much misinformation about honeybees being quoted as fact that I felt there needed to be some place people could learn about bees at the grass roots level.

I’m not always right, but I’m not against learning and improving myself and my industry.  Those that are closed minded and think they have learned all there is to learn are doomed to failure.
