Leave them alone and grandfather the business in. What’s next? Wood smoke from Grahame’s Bakery bothering the new residents? Better shut them down too. So sad when small town government gets too self important.

What an important and reputable business that has survived and grown in these years of small business demise. The honey hill as it was known was a play area for all neighbouring children many years ago and still is. The municipality and residents should be in total support of Peter’s business and location. In all the years living right beside the factory there was never an incident with the honey business located there – why now is there an issue? Peter there are many of us behind you all the way.

Other small centres are dying, due to lack of business. NYMBs are selfish!

So this an appeal for them to do so…it’s not sufficient to talk the talk …be courageous and walk the walk….I dare you? Then perhaps a dialogue can occur and this can be resolved in an adult way.

They had a beehive in their home that just fascinated our kids (The bees travelled in and out of the hive by way of a tube through the window sill.) We were lucky enough to get to see the centrifuge in the barn and watch Steve extract the honey. Our kids slid on the Honey Hill in the winter. I think this business and it’s heritage building is one of the things that make Kemptville a special place. I hope town council comes to it’s senses. I hope citizens of Kemptville continue to speak up and support Peter and his business. Where do I sign the petition?

Its politics. Its sad. NG went in the wrong direction here, and with enabling Kemptville to be the next Kemptvaven and tossing its small town values out the window. If you want Barrhaven, move there. Havnt the developers made enough money? Cant they go somwhere else, and put in some affordable housing and better traffic infrastructure while theyre at it. Leave the small businesses alone.

There is too much bullying tactics going on with government today . This council has embarrassed us and the community long enough . Elections are not far off , maybe a new council will start working for the betterment of all not just a few .
