2017 winter has sure started out this year with a wonderful array of wildflowers and different blooms. It made it difficult to start growing clover and sunflowers this year for providing essential good good for the bees here at the ranch. My queen rearing and mating yard is located on the Consumes Wildlife Preserve has been excellent for good mating of the queens and is now showing a wonderful nectar flow. Thank you all for your support with honey purchases and a reminder that I do sell mated queens. These queens are not banked but kept in nukes to keep them fresh and timid. Drop me a line if you’ve enjoyed some of this years excellent honey or have any bees questions.
