Honeybees, which provide honey, wax and pollination services, are a valuable livestock species to add to  your farm. We’ll cover basic bee biology, choosing an apiary location, forage availability, and various tools and equipment including hive and frame types. Starting with purchasing bees in the spring, we’ll look at each season’s activities to encourage healthy colonies. We’ll also cover common pest and disease treatment options, harvesting and marketing products from the hive.
