Happy Holidays!by Kristen Beck on 12/03/13
Well it's that time of year again, the holiday season. We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and you ate with wreckless abandon! We are currently preparing the bees for the upcoming arctic blast that is headed our way, extra food and love coming their way. Hopefully that will see them through it. We have been extremely lucky with the weather this fall, fairly dry and on the warmer side which i think has helped the bees considerably. Lost a few hives to robbers (the yellow jacket kind), an unfortunate occurence in the beekeeping world. Daisey Creek Farm got hit harder than the others so we will be refilling their boxes first, come spring swarm season. Neal has done a wonderful job getting the girls ready for winter, so i'm hopeful that the cold will not effect them too badly. I have been very busy getting soap made, no time like the present to get the stock replenished. Well we hope this holiday season brings happiness and a warm hearth to everyone out there. We will see you all in 2014!
