"We plan to start in beekeeping hopefully next year to pollinate our fruit trees and garden crops on our small farm.
Honey for home use would also be welcomed.
This year, we are researching, planning and planting additional garden areas near our home to be planted with species beneficial to bees for the rest of the year.

If you’re smooth, you’re FAST!”
