Back before we had a farm, we took a beekeeping class as a family with dreams of our own hives some day. In spring of 2020 Kevin built our bee hut, added electric wire across the front (to protect our hives from predators -yes we have bears walk through our property) and we started with our first 2 hives!
The bees love our colorful flowers, clover fields, and access to fresh water from our pond.
It's a family job to harvest that much honey! It's sticky and heavy and super sweet fun!
