We need more honeybees for the farm and need your help to make that happen.
We currently have two honeybee hives but want to expand to 8 this year along with expand our honeybee education program so more people know the importance of honeybees. Just how important are honeybees to the human diet? Typically, according to the US Department of Agriculture, these under-appreciated workers pollinate 80 percent of our flowering crops which constitute 1/3 of everything we eat. Losing them could affect not only dietary staples such as apples, broccoli, strawberries, nuts, asparagus, blueberries and cucumbers, but may threaten our beef and dairy industries if alfalfa is not available for feed. One Cornell University study estimated that honeybees annually pollinate $14 billion worth of seeds and crops in the U.S. Essentially, if honeybees disappear, they could take most of our insect pollinated plants with them, potentially reducing mankind to little more than a water diet.
Our bees are treated like honeybees they do what they want not forced to do what we want. We raise our honeybees the most natural way possible we never use chemicals to treat them for deceases, we don't transport them to pollinate mono crops and we alway leave them more than enough honey to feed themselves basically our bees run the farm and we work for them.
Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) is a serious problem threatening the health of honey bees and the economic stability of commercial beekeeping and pollination operations in Canada and they United States. Despite a number of claims in the general and scientific media, a cause or causes of CCD have not been identified by researchers. We believe part of this is because people have taken advantage of the honeybee stealing their honey and feeding them sugar water, treating them with chemicals, transporting and stressing them and basically not allowing the honeybee to be a honeybee.
