Excited to report the anticipated survival of the majority of our hives!
You never really know how the bees are going to handle another alberta winter, and when Kelsey and I first wrapped our hives last fall we had no idea what we would be finding come March. Being cautious and wanting to be certain that our lovely ladies would have enough food to get through the potentially long and cold alberta winter we decided to leave an extra box of honey on each hive.
Fast forward to now it would seem we were over cautious but better that way than having hunger issues be on top of the already precarious survival conditions of the Alberta bee.
When we went out to check on them just after Christmas we were thrilled to find every hive still buzzing happily inside their Christmas wrapping.
So we are now taking pre orders for honey! Even though the cost of bees has risen over 10% we are keeping the bulk pricing for honey at this time the same as last year. Please comment if you are interested in more details!
