After joining the Hamden County Beekeepers Association in the Winter of 2015, we started their Beekeeping Class in early 2016, and in the spring of 2016 we started with our very first hive!
We had a successful 2022 season with all our hives making it through the winter of 2021. We have made several strong splits to expand our bee-yard, and hope we have another great winter with a high survival rate.
We continue to learn MANY lessons from the bees and have figured out no matter what - the bees are going to do what the bees are going to do!
Through it all, we've learned to live by the words of one of our bee-mentors - "That's farmin'!"
