It’s been a difficult wet and windy winter for our bees. They are currently clustered tightly in a state of semi-hibernation, but on the last dry day, activity from all 5 hives was seen, which means that so far they are all overwintering well.

We do not artificially feed our bees unless absolutely necessary, as we believe feeding sugar has all kinds of negative implications for their health and well-being. So far they are happily munching their way through the extra honey stores of their own which we leave on for them.
