The Birds and The Bees

We also raise honeybees, ducks and chickens!


Last fall our bees absconded. We were so discouraged and entirely too busy this spring to start with a new package. Fortunately, we have good beekeeping friends in Jim and Tracey Young and this summer they caught a swarm and generously donated it to us! The following video was taken a week after we installed them. We were looking for brood, but luckily found the queen also!

The bees were too aggressive this afternoon, so we took sweaty selfies instead! #beesuitsbeehot #ohbother
