You can’t see it but this hive is covered with bees AND honey!  They say “don’t mess with our honey!”

Honey comb!  This is where the bees store their honey!  Brandon says he “anxiously awaited” this part of the event!  He was very excited to learn about how bees build honey combs!  Thank you again to the Farmshed Field School, the ESRCDC, and VESA for hosting this event!
