Bees on pasture

This weekend, we travelled to Albany to attend a beekeeping clinic taught by the SOWEGA beekeeper’s club in Albany, GA. We met terrific new friends, ate delicious food and learned alot about bees. White Oak Pastures will be receiving new colonies in April, and if all goes well throughout the coming years, we’d like to include honey in the CSA program as well. In the meatime, our bees will enjoy our certified organic acreage while helping to pollinate our 4 acre garden. In preparation for their arrival, we’ve planted perrenial white clover and plenty of flowers.

    When I saw the bee keepers at Chewhaw Park (Albany) on Sat I thought about WOP and how y’all should get some bees. Good luck with them and I hope to be able to buy honey in the future 🙂

    • Thanks, Chrissy. We’ll do our best to make that happen. Our goal this year is to build a healthy happy colony and pollinate our orchard and crops in the process. Thanks for the good wishes!

    I can’t wait for you to start selling honey! I am a firm believer in eating local honey to help allergies!!!
