Are you ready to learn to graft queen bees? Having the ability to raise your own queen honey bees is rewarding in many ways.
-Saves money ( Queens cost roughly $25 each when purchased)
-Self Sufficiency ( No longer rely on other beekeepers stock)
-Working with nature

In this video I show all the steps to raising your own queen bees.

As a beekeeper you know that the queen is the heart of the colony. You also know that without her the colony will fail. Now think about the price of each queen you have purchased in the past. Now don’t you think it’s time to learn to raise your own?

So sit back and learn to raise your own queen here today.

The 2016 Beekeeping season is officially started on the Daddykirbs Farm! The Golden Son Beekeeper and I made a drive about 3.5 hours north of us to meet a beekeeper friend to get some nuc hives. He was very kind to prepare 4 nucs for us out of his own apiary. We met in a very windy parking lot where we wrapped the hives in mesh laundry bags to keep the bees contained for the ride home. the drive was uneventful… No crazy bee swarm induced car wrecks, Yay!

When we arrived home there was still a little daylight so we worked to get some of the nucs installed. The bees were insanely angry and we were losing daylight fast so we didn’t get them all installed and certainly didn’t get very much usable video.

Most of this video was shot the next day when things were a little more calm. I hope you enjoy this time that you spend with us!

Beekeeping, as with most projects on the farm, is a journey. We are in our 5th season, but we are still very much learning how be beekeepers. This season I feel a little more confident than last season. Every time we do something new and spend money to continue this experiment I wonder if we are making a mistake. No, not a mistake for the bees. I’m glad to help be a part of the efforts to save the bees. The mistake I’m talking about is making another project on the farm. This project will take my time and my money. Over time we will have to learn to trim some of the projects on the farm so we can focus on those that make our farm productive and enjoyable. For this season… beekeeping made the cut. We are at it for another year and ramping up our efforts.

#growreallife is my hashtag to connect people interested in Growing Real Life. This is a bit of a double meaning. Growing Real means following the patterns of nature. Real Life is developed fully in our gardens and our souls when we pattern ourselves in harmony with nature. Grow with me.

Swarm Returns to Original Hive; I was asked by a documentary company to make a high def video of a swarm departing, the queen, the swarm in swarm mode and the arrival of the swarm at the new residence… In the process of making this video, I discovered that by re-routing the Queen, the workers will, in her absence, return to the original colony location… how NOT to lose your valuable worker bees.

I show how I raise queen cells by grafting larvae into a hopelessly queenless cell starter, and the next day transferring the grafts into a queenright cell finisher hive. 10 days after grafting, the cells are ready to use, and the virgins will emerge a day later.
