Yard Robbing, Time to Shift Our Work Into Robbing Mode - July 25 2021 Subscribe
My name is Ian Steppler, married to Sandy, father of 5. I farm with my family near Miami Manitoba Canada. We are third generation farmers started by my grandfather and carried forward by my parents. Nearly 10 years ago, my 3 brothers, parents and I restructured the farm into a company and have since expanded into a large grain, cattle and Beekeeping operation. We crop 3500 acres of land, calve 5-600 head of pure bred Charolais cattle and manage a 1200-1500 hive apiary. Since I bought my first 4 hives 19 years ago I have dedicated my life passion towards beekeeping. I credit the current standing of my apiary to others on whom I have leaned on over the years to help guide me though many management, logistical and husbandry issues. I am a big believer in paying it forward which motivates me to share my successes and failures with others.
