We created an apiary to keep bees. From our bees we get both honey and wax. Honey is delicious and useful in our cooking and baking, or even medicinal. Wax we can use in a multitude of ways, for example for making candles, treat wood or textiles.
We only extracted about 5% of the honey in our hives this year, as it is the first year for this apiary and we want to increase the probability that our bees survive winter and thrive next year.
