Bees are amazing. They pollinate our food and give us honey! The honey is a super food and a big part of our diet here on the farm. We started with beehives on the property five years ago and the results have been tremendous! Our produce have really taken off, especially the raspberries and apple harvests. Last year we added buckwheat, sunflowers and hemp to the rotation for the bees to have a variety of nectar to collect and enjoy!
One of the great benefits to having hemp next to the beehives is that the hemp plants flower later in the year than most flowers giving the bees more food at the end of the season. We are interested in creating Buckwheat CBD Honey in the next few years.
In 2020 we will have workshops and more information on keeping bees locally.
