NL Open Farm Day - Full Colour.png

Farms across Newfoundland & Labrador opened  their doors for NL Open Farm Day, an annual province-wide initiative to highlight the importance and raise awareness of the agriculture industry.

For farmers, this event is an opportunity to share their passion for agriculture and to teach visitors what a day on the farm looks like. For the public, it’s a fun outing for all ages to meet local farmers and experience how a working farm operates.

Pollen Nation Farm

32 Bonnell Drive, Little Rapids

Pollen Nation was open for tours and food for purchase from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m.

We are located in the beautiful Humber Valley in Western Newfoundland. At our small bee farm, we are committed to exceptional quality and we are passionate about fostering connections between people, their food, and the natural environment. 


We are proud to be part of the movement that is working to grow the bee population and enhance biodiversity on the island of Newfoundland. The efforts and strides being made will help increase food security and sustainability. By buying honey from a local producer, you are helping support the growth and sustainability of the NL honeybee population.
