There are few projects on our homestead that bring us as much satisfaction as our bee hives do. For a small start-up investment in beekeeping supplies, and the initial hives, this addition to our farm has really paid off. We have two hives and on average we collect about four to six gallons of honey each year. That is plenty to supply our needs along with allowing us to give some away as gifts at Christmas time.
