Catching up with the Honeybees

Actually, it wouldn't be hard to catch up with our honeybees, as they're not going anywhere! In fact, they're all wrapped up and protected from the winter cold, awaiting their 2012 season debut in late April.

Last fall, beekeeper Fred Davis harvested the honey from our seven hives. Watch the delectable honey get extracted in this video, hosted on COC Radio, filmed and edited by Fred's brother, Richard Davis.

Thanks, Fred and Richard!
