Sausalito Hive Visit

We were very lucky to visit the talented Jennifer Berry this weekend to take a gander at her impressive beekeeping setup. In all she has approximately 10 hives and has all sorts of cool beekeeping techniques going on. Below is a short summary of our visit and tour of Jennifer’s hives.

Smelling the sweet honey from one of the hives. Currently it has a very distinct flavor based on the regional flowers in bloom at this time of year!

Here Jennifer points out how she feeds her bees dry, unprocessed sugar. A real revelation for us!

Loading Up the Hives

Finally, after an hour or so of negotiating the scissor lift and gently taping shut the entrance to the hives, we got them both loaded in the back of the truck. Whew.

Visitors: A Diver, A Karate Kid, and a Puppeteer

I don’t know what it is about visiting our hive, but everyone feels the inspiration to do bee impersonations.
