We keep our hives bees on a lot across from the farm. The hives are not accessible to the public because they do sting on occasion. On a sunny day, you will see them drinking from the pond, gathering pollen from the flowers in the garden center and in our gardens around the farm and doing their work, pollinating inside the high tunnels. Without pollination many plants wouldn’t produce fruit or seeds.
Bees need a variety of flowering plants throughout the spring summer and fall, and they like most to visit the plants with smaller flowers heads, think Queen Ann’s Lace not Tulips. Our bees are not placed right in front of a big field of flowering clover of course so they have to work a little bit and search for a wide array of flowers. This produces a very unique and complex tasting honey. Each fall we harvest the their honey and sell it to the public. Look for the “Greensgrow Farms Raw Honey” label.
