Checking in With my Honeybees

With so many things blooming at my farm, the honeybees have been especially busy flitting from flower to flower and back to their hives to feed the developing brood and to make honey.  D.J. Haverkamp from Bedford Bee Honeybee Service, came to the farm recently to give Carlos, who cares for my bees, a lesson in checking the hives and splitting one hive in two, as I wanted to increase my honey production.  Honeybees are fascinating little creatures that never cease to amaze me!
