The latest buzzzzzz at Double A Farms

Over the winter, the Arnold family took classes to learn how to raise bees.  Just this past week, the bees were introduced to their new home at Double A Farms. Having bees on the farm will help pollinate the berries.  Some sources say you can get 30-40% more of a crop when you have bees on hand to pollinate.

  1. Hey!! I use to raise bees with my brother - we had a lot of fun - and as long as you're dressed right, no stings! We got a lot of honey and sold some - we were about the same ages as the kids. It's a lot of fun - we even found a queen bee once - but she wasn't smart enough to run a camera.... ha!
