Our Beekeeping Passion
2 pint of our Local Cut Comb Honey. $20 each. This is one of our most popular honey products. Makes great Christmas gifts also!
See that funny looking dish on top of this hive? That is a Solar Powered Ventilator
! We pamper our Bees! And proud of it too! ha! The bottom 2 boxes is where the Queen is brooding. The rest of the boxes?.....have HONEY! Each set of 2 boxes, if full, will produce 5 gal's of honey, some more, some less. But still a lot of honey!
This is an up close picture of the Solar panel on top of the hive above. We currently run 22 of these Solar Powered Ventilators. Worth doing! Decreases moisture inside, less Varroa mite issues, honey capped over quicker, and more Workers hit the field, versus staying home to fan. And, the Queens love the fresh air! They lay better!
Harvesting our Bee Pollen
! When running our pollen traps
, we'll have to harvest about every 3 or 4 days. Bees bring in LOTS of pollen!
Queens! They're beautiful to look at...if they'll ever hold still. We enjoy making Queens off and on throughout the Bee season. (Check for availability) This is a very important part of our Sustainable Beekeeping efforts.
