In 2021 we added Honey bees to the farm. We did this to offer another product to the store but also to give Marie and myself a project we could do together. We started with 2 hives and will grow a little as needed to keep our bees healthy and happy and to also expand our honey production amount.
The bees are kept in a sheltered are close to the fields so that they have full access to all of the willow trees for protection from the sun and wind but full access to everything around them. Just as with everything we do here we are using natural practices to protect and treat the bee’s.
Honey is sold by the pound so you can get as much as you would like either bring a container or we can supply you one for a small fee.
We are hoping to add comb honey as well as wax and propolis in the coming years as we get better established in this endeavor.
