default How is honey production this year?

Post by Hathorite on 19th August 2010, 8:27 am

I want to get some bulk honey in (still trying to find suppliers in my area) but I wonder how the honey production is doing with the year turning so quickly? I don't want to deplete the bees if they're going to struggle over this winter. I do know that my lamb supplier has said the grass is very sparse right now due to the weather turning and his lambs are more wool than meat right now, so they may have to start supplementing with hay in August of all things before they're ready for processing. I wonder if this will be an issue for bees as well?

Bumper crop of honey from the bees at my local association place.

Even got a lttle bit in my own hive after only 3 weeks but that's staying there for the bees this year
