The “Bee Blog”!

Before we started to engage our customers on Facebook, there was the “Bee Blog”. Initially a paper newsletter passed out at the Markets we attended, the Bee Blog eventually made its way on to our website.

If you’d like to keep up with the latest happenings in the apiary and the kitchen, we’d encourage you to visit our Facebook page.

The Bee Blog – May 2010

Spring came early this year and it’s been busy around here. We’ve all been given our pollen patties and some sugar syrup to do us until the natural sources become available. Now it’s dandelion time and boy do we love that. Lots of pollen and nectar! Yum, Yum!

The Bee Blog – May 2009

It’s hard to believe, but here we are again with another season at the Farmer’s Market. Didn’t we just leave this place? It’s been a long hard winter for the bees with some losses, but not as severe as last year for us.

The Bee Blog – September 2008

Our beehives have been used in a test study during the last 2 years by two biology students from Acadia University. They found that not only did my hives have “nosema apis” but also “nosema cerana”. That was a surprise, but as it turns out, so do most of the hives tested in N.S.

The Bee Blog – June 2002

It is now the middle of June and boy is it getting busy around here! We’ve all had a good winter with no major catastrophes. As the weather has been getting warmer and warmer, our Queen has been laying more and more eggs.
