Bees & Honey
In Spring 2009 we gave a home to 7 hives of honey bees. Unfortunately, due to unavoidable circumstances, our beekeeper has had to give up and we no longer have any hives here at the moment. However, I still intend to keep you up to date with what should be happening in the hives you may see about.
weather conditions should be getting better gradually and the hives should be active, being fed until the flowers are abundant. You should see more bees about and even the wild bees should be busy too.
there are many species of Bee- they are so important to farmers as part of the pollinator group, enabling our crops to flourish.
