Last year we had 5 bee hives and we’ve brought in another this year. We decided that 6 hives would be a good number to stop at, but the bees had another idea! They decided they wanted three more so they swarmed and we now have a total of 9 hives! If all goes well, we should be able to get honey later this summer from at least 5 of the hives.
UPDATE 8/1/11: We have honey!! Here are the prices if interested:
12oz size is $4.00 tax included
24oz size is $7.50 tax included
small bottle is approx 4 oz and is $2.00 tax included
