2014 Year in review....by john speckman on 12/08/14
2014 Has been a great year for us... we have been able to replace all the bees lost during the winter of 2013, and even added to our overall colony count. The honey producing months of June thru August proved to be better that the previous 2 years. We have been busy getting the girls ready for winter, and to do some supplement feeding to get the necessary weight for the comming cold weather... ususally like to have the hives weight between 100 # and 150#. this will be enough food to last the winter.
This winters chores will be building new boxes to replace any that are needed, also planning on increasing our numbers to over 450 colonies for the 2015 season, and this will take quite a bit of additional equipment.
We will be attending the 2015 ABF (American Beekeeping Federation) annual meeting in California in January 2015. Will be giving a couple of talks on beekeeping, looking forward to seeing old friends, and meeting new beekeepers.
We want to say thanks to all of you that have bought our honey, we strive to have a Pure Natural product, and greatly appreciate the business.
