Bees!

Dear Readers,

I am excited to introduce you to Butterbee Farm’s resident beekeeper, Matt Fouse! Matt came to the farm last week armed with three pounds of bees and a hive! After spraying them with sugar water to keep them calm, he released them into their hive.

The bees flew all around us……. we were in a cloud of buzzing!

They will start out in a single hive, and then Matt will install another to give them more room.

I planted mountain mint next to the hive; the bees will have food right at their doorstep when the mint flowers! In the meantime, I like to visit them and watch them buzz in and out of their hive.

Happy May!
