30,000 Bees!

We took a little extra time last week to capture our honey bee work on Little Big Farm (It’s amazing what you can do with an iPhone these days!). We’re hoping “third time’s the charm” as this will be our third attempt to raise bees on the farm and get them through the winter. Bees have been struggling in the United States with many colonies collapsing for one reason or another. This new set of bees has a leg up in that they will be able to take advantage of honey and comb set up by the previous residents. We’ll be extra vigilant this year to help them stay healthy and prosper!
