Some of our hives overwintered just fine. A surprise given the severity of our Wiinter. Sue started feeding the bees and took the Winter wraps off of the hives. Sue did order some new nucs to start additional hives and she plans to have our bees at Arcadia (Easthampton) again and also at Mr. Brakey's farm. Of course we will still keep some hives at our farm. We still have some of our honey from last year so we can sell that in our tasting room store and at the Northampton Sat Farmers Market and at the Florence Wed. Farmers Market. Not sure when the new bees are arriving. Sue will be helping a friend in Chesterfield set up a hive.
We are way behind on pruning...didn't start yet. Gotta get going on the apple trees and grape vines.
