Beekeeping Insurance FAQs

Why do I need bee insurance in Saskatchewan?

It’s important for beekeepers to get insurance specifically created for them. Beekeeping comes with unique risks, and trying to cover your bees under another type of policy won’t fully protect you. 

What is Pollinator Partnership Canada?

10% of the proceeds from every purchase of Sandbox’s Buzz Box is donated to Pollinator Partnership Canada’s Bee Friendly Farming (BFF) Initiative? BFF strives to empower farmers and growers with the tools and knowledge they need to protect, preserve, and promote pollinator health on their land. These efforts help ensure the longevity of pollinators and sustainable agriculture across Saskatchewan, all of Canada, and beyond!

I farm in addition to beekeeping. Can I bundle the Buzz Box with other coverages?

Yes! You can add optional coverages onto your policy as stated in the Optional Coverage section above. Just talk to your broker and they will help craft the perfect Bee Insurance policy for you!
