It was perfect day to visit a local Honeybee Farm!
We have been feeling under the weather and I wasn't sure we would be able make the field trip, but thankfully, everyone felt better this morning, so off we went!
I have purchased local honey and there was a time that there were hives, in a field, across the road but I have never visited a farm and seen how they processed the honey.
I was a little nervous at first with all of the bees floating around the place, but once the presentation started I was able to forget about them and enjoy myself! I mean it is a bee farm, I don't know what I was expecting, to not see bees?
We had a great time, learned a lot about bees, and came home with some yummy honey and some lotion that is made with the beeswax from the farm.
Mike wasn't able to go, which may have been a good thing, since I think he would have caught the "honey fever" and wanted to get some hives of our own! The gentleman who owned the farm has loved bees since he was a boy. You could tell by listening to him that he LOVES what he does for a living.
Great Farm, Great People, Great HONEY!
Reasons to buy local honey:
Most of the stuff labeled" honey" at the store is NOT pure honey.
Helps with seasonal allergies.
Supporting the local beekeepers "Save the Bees" :)
I had my camera charging all night so I could get some pictures. For some reason it didn't charge so all I had with me was a DEAD camera and a lousy phone which did NOT take good pictures. I am bummed!!
