Bees on the Farm

Joel Hauser, the President of our Board and a long-time beekeeper has some of his bee hive boxes at  the Farm & Food Education Center.
On April 4, 2019 we were incredibly lucky to discover a bee swarm moving away from the hive boxes.  The following videos document Joel and our Executive Director, Sally Causey working to contain the hive and queen, so that they could be relocated to a new hive box.
Check this video out to hear Joel talk about why bees swarm.
If the loud wind sound bothers you, fast forward to 2:30. That's when we really get close.

Did we get the queen in the box?
