So Why Does One Keep Bees?

Beekeeping is an invitation to a magical world of honey and beeswax, where understanding, cooperation, and harmony offer a golden gift.

With a trip to the hive, the day’s trials are lost to the whirl of purpose and production in the stacks of painted pine boxes at the forest’s edge.

We marvel at the dance of the bees; we witness a collective masterpiece, finding answers to questions we did not know we had.

Though I am a beekeeper, I do not keep the bees. It is they who keep me, filling the supers of my soul with wonder and awe.
