Pollinators are not simply a blip in the news; they are something all farmers need to actively consider. This discussion will detail how to develop a framework to integrate honey bees into a farming system. With a focus on the question “is keeping bees right for you and your farm?” the presenter will explore the costs (financial, learning, and labor) and potential benefits (pollination and production) associated with honey bees as well as discuss how to manage and balance the expectations of what honey bee colonies need as well as what they could bring to your farm.
