Bee Friendly!

December 15, 2017

So its been a busy fall in the hives. We got the bees wrapped up and tucked in with the help from our little bee man.

We also got a hand from big John Downey putting a few bees in the barn. Thank you John.

So at this point in the season a lot of people are looking back s...

This week was a busy one. We had a bit of traveling planned, and since I was away the prior week, before we could leave we had to tend the bees. It was time to extract the honey. I like to do this when we have a few good days of weather coming. Then I can put the wet (...

It was a good week in the yard. The hives are building well and honey is adding up. By the looks of things I will be extracting a day or two next week. I like to extract when the hives get a bit too tall for my liking.

I had the pleasure of working with a couple new bee...

It has been a good week in the bees. We took a look in the hives to be sure they have the space needed to keep gathering honey. If they run out the hive will suffer and the queen will not have room to lay. This is also good time of year to organize the bee supplies and...

This has been a much calmer week with the bees. The clover is out in force and the bees are having no problem finding good wild nectar and pollen, this makes great honey! We took a look through the hives just to see that they had room to grow and the queens are laying...

This week we went through the hives checking for space. We want to be sure our hives have enough room to grow but not so much space they are not able to defend it from other bees, ants, beetles, or wax moths. When the bees cover 6-7 frames in a box we add another box....

It’s been a busy two weeks for the bees. We have been running around doing the spring gathering of new equipment and new beehives. We added a few new hives to our apiary this year. We decided to purchase bees from a couple locations. This will give us just a bit more d...

When we were deciding how we wanted to sell our honey one of the ideas we knew we really wanted was to set up a self-serve honor farm stand. I've always loved the idea behind trusting your neighbor and feel fortunate to live in an area like Cadyville where these kind o...

Saturday we where honored to participate in the local "Food From the Farm" event that the Cornell Cooperative Extension Clinton County hosted.   We were one of 26 local farmers and 4 restaurants that took part.  

With the temperature not getting much above 4 d...

This week we had a couple warm days. When we are lucky enough to have weather like this we like to open up the hives and see how the girls are doing. On this check we wanted to make sure they have enough food, look for moisture, and the biggest thing we did was add som...
