We are all aware of the important work bees play in pollinating many of our food crops. We are fortunate to have hives from Silveyville Farms on our farm all year long. We have to make sure that they have something to work on. Luckily the diversity of the farm and the fact that we are not too fastidious about weeds in our borders helps with this. There is a field of sunflowers being grown for seed next to our farm so the bees seem very happy at the moment.
