Back in 2015 we planted a handful of fruit trees in our yard. Unfortunately we had seen ZERO honey bees at the trees during that first year. Without those busy pollinators we knew our small fruit production would not take off. After some reading about honey bees, we placed our first order for two bee colonies. Not only have the bees made a difference for us, but also our neighbors are finally seeing their fruit trees thrive. Today our apiary has grown to five hives.
