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.
Jennifer in front of just a couple of her 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!
Jennifer overlooking the rest of her hives just below the few hives on the balcony.
A detailed shot of the two hives and queen rearing set-up. Top tip: writing notes right on the hive lid is a great way to keep track of hive activity!
Here Jennifer points out how she feeds her bees dry, unprocessed sugar. A real revelation for us!
