As we move forward on the farm, we are transitioning into a true place of healing and a true experience instead of just a place to sleep.
This Summer and Fall have been different. It was the year we planted a rotational crop. We planted beans. Every 5-7 years you must rotate your clover and alfalfa then replant the following year. Being I was never a farmer prior to my coming to Bee Fresh Farm, I never realized the delicate balance of which Nature teeters on. Year to year month to month even day to day changes how the farm looks and what grows naturally. I always thought the same thing grew in the same place on the farm year after year, no matter what. I am learning and want to share with you how untrue that is. Last year we had wild yard clover everywhere. We had no or very little golden rod on the farm and our Honey was awesome and sweet. This year 2018 the clover was almost non-existent and the honey was extremely harsh because the golden rod was everywhere(very medicinal).
Documentation and paying attention is super important for the future farmers of this generation and the next. If we do not become better stewards of the land and of nature our losses will multiply beyond our repair. That being said we have had a good summer with very little honey bee loss. Good honey production.
In addition, we are proud to announce the new Lion Head mating pair of rabbits and a new puppy named Ginger who is a female lab.
Stay tuned from us at BFF.
