Ravine's Edge Honey Bees
We are so excited to add 2 hives to our farm! Lots of pollinating, lots of learning and lots of delish honey! As the bees are working around the clock, we have been enjoying them buzzing around and finding them on all the flowers, clover and garden! Seeing them come back covered in pollen makes our hearts full :)

Did you know that 1 little bee can pollinate up to 300,000,000 flowers each day?! Now we know where busy bees comes from :) Bees are the pollinators of fruits, vegetables and nuts which equals to 70% of our food crops and 90% of our nutrition. We need bees and they need us!
