Having your own beehives to produce honey is rewarding and exciting, but there is an even more essential reason to keep bees. As honeybees fly from flower to flower, collecting nectar and pollen for food, they are pollinating the flowers. The honeybee is not the only pollinator, but because of its nature and characteristics, it is one of the most effective. Pollination in vegetable gardens and orchards is essential because without bees for pollination, some fruits and vegetables may not set fruit. In our beekeeping classes, you will learn many ways honey bees are beneficial to a homestead and what it takes to get started in beekeeping.
