Looking pretty good so far

Just a quick post. The temperature hit 50 degrees today and there was bee poop on the windshield of my truck. Hooray. Have at least five hives that showed some activity and when I lifted the back ends, they felt pretty heavy still which is a sign of ample stores. We’ll see what the rest of the winter brings. I’m glad I left most of my hives as double deeps plus a medium going into the winter.

About Beekeeping in the Berkshires

Here at Berkshire Farms Apiary we've been keeping bees and making honey since 2005, with hives in most of the surrounding towns. We also make pure beeswax candles, lip balm, and hand salve, as well as give presentations. As secretary of the Northern Berkshire Beekeepers Association, I am very active in the local beekeeping community.
