Presenting, for the world, all of MEVO’s
beehives! MEVO has gotten over six beehives in place at its various
farms over the past few months—the hives in the top photo are located
in our Pony Power Farm and the hives in the bottom photo are located at our BCC Farm.
Now for some special details about each of these hives. Each hive is
inspected at least once week to make sure nothing is going on with the
bees. The middle blue hive at Pony Power has two honey supers, which are
like honey ware houses, and one will be harvested by the bees at the
end of summer, and the other hive will be used by the bees during the
winter. And the leftmost hive in our BCC photo has bees that the
Executive Director, Eric Fuchs-Stengel, caught from a tree. If that’s
not awesome I don’t know what is.
All of these hives will produce hundreds of pounds of honey next summer. And it will be a most sweet harvest for MEVO.
