Apparently, today is World Bee day so it seemed appropriate to write about our new additions to the farm. We got honey bees and I’m so excited… but also a little nervous!
We took a class at our local extension on beekeeping and have also joined a local beekeeping society. Fortunately, a good friend of Bryce’s is also an experienced bee keeper so we have him to look to for advice and guidance.
We are starting with one hive, which we got from a local apiary. Of course, I had to paint the hive boxes to match our farm colors, and I love how it turned out! The hive is placed at the back of our small orchard, close to the lavender and garden! I really hope the bees love their new home!
