Last spring, we added an apiary to the farm.  We got our first package of bees March 22, 2009 and have enjoyed watching the hive grow and prosper!  Our initial hive swarmed in the summer last year and we were able to capture the swarm to start a second colony.  Unfortunately, we lost one of the colonies this winter.  We did not see any signs of disease, so we think it was just too cold of a winter for such a new colony.  At first check this spring, the remaining colony was alive and thriving!
