Why don’t you buy bees?
It will answer all these nagging questions!
A bee colony is not very active in winter but anyway you don’t want to spend a lot of time in your garden when the weather is awful. Bees start being active in spring and watching them will…
…connect you to all the countryside blooming around you. You don’t normally pay attention to birds singing in early February but now with the rising of your bees you will. The bee experience is bringing you peace as their schedule is only nature. (They start working outside when it’s above 53°F.)
It will be a pleasure for you to see your whole family fully equipped with beekeeping outfits in the yard moving toward the apiary. To look at the development of your bee colony is a good introduction…
…to talking about social insects : the structuration of a very well organized community, altruism, but also about pollination. Without pollinators such as honey bees, we would not have so many fruit or vegetables. Think about your menu without them… So sad! Fortunately, you decided to buy this hive! Along with the seasons you will see your colony growing, you will put supers on top of the hive and look at the bees filling them with nectar.
Try to weigh your hive. It’s very heavy. It’s time for you to harvest your honey. Imagine your family helping you carry the super to your kitchen, the delicate perfume of the honey…
…in your house. Again the federative power of the bees is acting around you…
The garden has bigger and nicer strawberries, your apple tree is full of fruit… Next winter you’ll have to look at cookery books or websites because of this amount of honey and these fruit! Think about…
…jam, apple pies, sweet and sour sauces with honey, honey cakes! Forget about sugar in your tea or coffee, use YOUR honey! Ask your children to draw and design your honey label for the jars.
You can buy everything you need for beekeeping in our shop and ask the attendant your questions.
