NEW APP: The Pollination Network app aims to help local growers and farmers across the United States find the bees they need for healthier and more sustainable crops.

New app connects beekeepers and growers

Pollination Network, a mobile app that connects beekeepers and growers, has recently launched in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

Pollination Network, a mobile app that helps local farmers and growers find bees and beekeepers, launched this week in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. The app helps beekeepers to find jobs with nearby growers, and it allows growers to post public listings and hire beekeepers within the app.

“It’s become more and more difficult for growers to find bees over the years,” says Brandon Bouye, owner and founder of the app. “But it’s been just as hard for beekeepers to keep their hives growing and their businesses afloat. We wanted to change that.”

When beekeepers download the app, they will have access to a map featuring job listings from growers across the country who need bees. They can filter by location, expected price rate and quality of bees, and apply for jobs straight from the app.

Growers will be able to post listings from their smartphones, customizing each job listing to their specific needs. Then, employees at the Pollination Network headquarters will manage the listings and notify growers when a suitable beekeeper is found.

“Strengthening the grower-beekeeper relationship doesn’t just improve a tiny corner of the economy,” Bouye says. “It protects the environment, and it puts food on the table for people across the country.”

The Pollination Network app can be downloaded for free in the Apple App Store and Google Play. For more detailed information, visit the Pollination Network website.
