The Bees Have Arrived! | April 15, 2016

We’re so excited to announce that we’ve installed the first two hives of our apiary, and we’ll continue to add hives to the farm over the next few years.

A very special thank you to an amazing organization, Bee Downtown, for helping us install and maintain our hives! Bee Downtown’s founder, Leigh-Kathryn Bonner, has an extensive knowledge about bees, and it is such a pleasure to work with and learn from her. Here she is setting up the hives and answering my questions:

Thank you also to the very talented Danell Beede who took all of these amazing photos!

Proceeds from the honey produced on our farm will be donated to local children’s charities and the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. It will take at least a year for the hives to establish themselves, but look for our honey next summer…we’ll be sure to let you know when and where we’ll be selling it!
