Also known as beekeeping; it is one of the oldest recorded agricultural practices, spanning as far back as 7,000 B.C.E. Today public awareness is essential to help future generations have an understanding of the importance of domesticated, and native pollinators around the world. Here at FoxTail Farm, we are working diligently to not only raise the domesticated Honey Bee, but also develop native habitats for many varieties of Ohio Big Darby-Plains native pollinators.
Bee Keeping has been an exceptionally rewarding endeavor. Moving into my third year as an Apiarist, there is still a lifetime of things left to learn and understand. Bees, and pollinators in general are extremely important to all of our local ecosystems, through bee keeping I am learning just how much we as mankind can truly affect our world. Whether it be invasive species, climate change, or habitat loss; we all have a place in this world, and we all can affect much more than we think. Through my work, I try to convey the importance of sustainability, and stewardship; bee keeping gives me the first hand knowledge to help drive change. -Andrew Cain FoxTail Farm Apiarist
