Looking Back at 2011

2011 was a notable year for us – our first Open House for International Day of the Honey Bee, healthy over wintered bees, strong populations, and a phenomenal year for honey!

Spring has Sprung

Finally, we have some nice weather and the honey bees are able to enjoy the crocus.

The snow has just left the fields and we are feeling the + 9 to +11 C that we need to check in on the honey bees.

We have wintered well! The honey bees are strong and anxious to find any kind of nectar or pollen.

Our early sources include hazelnut, pussy willow, the crocus and heather.

There is good news: the bees hunkered down in their warm hives have wintered well. Please remember to mark you calendar for our coming events.

Happy New Year

may_9_078_(2)Arlo’s Honey Farm would like to take a moment to reflect back on our year 2010. Thank you to all of our visitors to the beautiful Okanagan and thank you to all of our clientelle for making this an exciting and wonderful year. With the hectic holiday behind us we look forward to a busy New Year.

The snow is gently falling, once again, but the bees are clustered tightly around the Queen Bee in warm insulated hives. the bees will remain this way until the hope of spring is in the air. In the mean time, on a warm and sunny day, the worker bees will take a short cleansing flight but quickly return to the warmth of the hive.
