bees bees bees!

We're so excited to be hosting our friend Phil's honey bees. Pollinators are so important to what we do here at the farm and these creatures are proving to be equally fascinating and unbelievable. There are five hives located a safe distance from our market garden guarded by electric fencing to deter any curious bears (we hope anyhow!). We've gotten to meet our bees up close and personal, and we're happy to report that the queens have been accepted and our hives appear to be thriving.  By the end of July, we think we'll be ready to harvest some honey!
