So in 2017 we embarked on a new project. Jonathan has always wanted bees and Courtney didn't object so... we got bees! Starting off with just the one hive it was exciting to watch the activity at different times of the year. While it hadn't been a full year we took the decision to harvest from the hives to get some 'instant' reward.
It was an extremely rewarding experience. Nature can be such a weird and wonderful concept. When you work with animals so many things can go wrong, so many untold and unknown issues can clog up any and all hard work.
With that being said, the rewards when it goes right are exceptional and make the upset, tears and handwork totally worth it!
