Hunter's Honey Farm photos
From our weekend trip to
Hunter's Honey Farm
Some bees were in a tent, which had smoke to hide phermones.
Newly hatched bees were starting to come out, and a mom was able to feed one for the very first time. The new bees eat honey with their little red tongues. (Go figure.)
Pointing out where a bee was emerging. The girls were excited to be the first person to ever see that bee.
Inside, the girls got to fill their own honey bears. (Ours already has been well used!)
Pouring beeswax candles. (Visitors can roll their own candle.) Beeswax is smokeless when it burns!
