Seasonal

 

The 2013 honey season started off very slow this year. The weather remained cold and wet well into June. The high mortality rate of bees nationwide last winter resulted in our package bee supplier only able to provide 2 pound packages rather than the 3 pounders we prefer to have this far north.

 

Nevertheless, favorable weather the second half of June has brought the bees along nicely and they have a good start on producing an average crop.
