Bee Friendly Farming (BFF) from the Pollinator Partnership, is a program that provides guidelines for farmers and growers interested in promoting pollinator health on their lands. Pollinators are an indispensable natural resource in agriculture and healthy ecosystems. Farmers and beekeepers are on the front line in playing a critical role for their survival.
