Palm Beach County Beekeepers Association is proud to announce it has successfully lobbied the Palm Beach County Taxpayers office and secured a decease in the number of colonies per acre required to qualify for agricultural classification. The previous number of colonies required was 25 colonies per acre. The new requirement is 10 colonies per acre.
This decease in the number of colonies required to qualify for the agricultural classification is only applicable in honey production. Additionally, in order to qualify, you must be a legitimate business with all applicable licencing, insurance, records and tax documents.
The Pollinators is a cinematic journey around the United States following migratory beekeepers and their truckloads of honey bees as they pollinate the flowers that become the fruits, nuts and vegetables we all eat. The many challenges the beekeepers and their bees face en route reveal flaws to our simplified chemically dependent agriculture system. We talk to farmers, scientists, chefs and academics along the way to give a broad perspective about the threats to honey bees, what it means to our food security and how we can improve
“The Pollinators does an exceptional job of capturing all of the issues affecting pollinators, and uses the people most affected, and the people doing the most to reduce these issues, to explain, to show and to solve the problems our pollinators are having. A Who’s Who in science, beekeeping and agriculture showing the mess we have created, and the ways to fix it. Well done.”
—Kim Flottum, Bee Culture Magazine
“I have seen my fair share of documentary films about agriculture and agribusiness including films about bees. Peter Nelson’s The Pollinators the most well-produced, comprehensive film about bees I have seen...There are many fronts in humanity’s destruction of the natural world. It seems as if people are not getting this particular message: bees go, we go. The Pollinators gets this message across to any
and all who will sit down, look, and listen.”
—Don Schwartz, Marin Post
“The gorgeously shot The Pollinators not only provides a warning, but is solutions-based.”
—San Francisco Chronicle
