April S W A R M!!!!

Henry came running inside the house last Saturday to announce that there was a huge swarm of honey bees in the backyard. April swarms are a bit of a shock for beekeepers as it is quite early for queens to take half a hive out on the road with her in search of a new home. We were grateful for the surprise though and Patti didn’t hesitate to suit up and make a grab for the swarm (well, maybe a little). After all, you can never have enough bees on a flower farm and wedding season is upon us so we need happy flowers!

Watch as Patti and her stalwart intern, Eugenia, wrangle in their first April honey bee swarm.

Every Farmer needs a farm hand, and that hand is Kevin!
