This is Don Erwin who has hives on the farm year round. Bees perform such a vital role in pollinating so many crops. We do have many native bees also, we need them all. Some years Don has honey to sell, which we have sold with your box.
At the end of the week we will be moving some chickens to the area when Don and his Son Gary keep their honey and supplies. Around these two buildings there are lots of ants. The chickens will eat down the vegetation then go for the ants. It is the best way we have found to rid an area of ants without using chemicals.
The work Don does on the farm is another example of all the people and work that is needed to make sure you get your harvest share every week.
