This week we moved the bee hives from our in-town apiary, up to the cabin property. The bees are finished with the spring wildflower production and it is time for the Sourwood trees to bloom in the mountains.
The nectar of this little bloom, found only in the southern Appalachians, produces the very best honey in the world. And since it is almost the only thing blooming at the time, the bees will make a unique pure Sourwood honey.
The apiary (bee yard) is surrounded by a solar-powered electric fence to keep out bears.
