Field and Farm Notes: Reflections On The Past Year At Daylesford Farm By Our Resident Environmental Scientist Tim Field
We have always had bees on the farm but 2017 was a real success story. Our Head Stockman, a member of the gardening team and I took over responsibility of the beehives at Daylesford. We began training by intensively studying all the nuances of caring for our essential pollinators and generous honey-providers. They say you can’t learn everything there is to know about bees in a lifetime, but our new beekeepers are up for the challenge!
