This week’s episode is all about, “Apiary and Aviculture”.
Many farmers see bee’s or wild bird’s as a problem and often chase them away. However, did you know that they can in fact not only protect your crops, but greatly increase your yields if properly provided for?
A study by the “University of Hawaii” found that a honeybee hive working a hectare of cucumbers yielded “3 times” more fruits than plots without bees. In addition, each individual fruit is also heavier in bee pollinated plot compared to those plots without bees.
On our farm we have 4 hives with plans to increase to 10 by the years end. Our commitment to bee’s and wild birds has lead our farm to success.
