Rain rain go away!

Blueberry crops are starting to bloom in the Fraser valley and the bees are on the move we're getting the hives ready to go into our contracts next weekend ! After a long cold spring the bees are in need of some nice flying weather to help them build up. Feeding pollen substitute and sugar syrup helps them build but nothing works like the real thing. Last year at this time we were already spliting collonies to control swarming. Our summer markets start May 22 in Steveston and June12th in Ladner. We put some of our products into Richmond country farms (Steveston Hwy and hwy 99 )and they've been selling well! KEEP THE BUZZ IN BRITISH COLUMBIA BUY LOCAL HONEY !
