Welcome to your Brookfield Farm Hiveshare summer newsletter.
Come to our Honey Celebration!
You are invited to the Brookfield Farm Honey Celebration on Saturday 12th September! We are really excited about this 1st Honey Celebration. We’re planning some lovely events as part of the ‘A Taste of Lough Derg Festival’.
Taste the honey, Meet the beekeeper and the bees, enjoy the farm during the day on your visit. Hivesharers go free for the tour. Stay on for a BBQ in the evening and enjoy our local produce. Spaces are limited, so:
It's been a changeable summer - sure you have noticed too! Sunny and breezy, rainy and stormy. The bees are dealing with the late blossoms and restricted growth. Important tree flowers came in late, but the blackberries are flowering early already!
Some hives have been split, some need more building up. We lost one swarm during haymaking, it went to the top of an ash tree about 25 metres up and from there who knows where?
On the farm, wildflower meadows are sown, the new fruit and nut orchard is thriving, the scent of newly cut grass is everywhere. Ailbhe has finished correcting agricultural students' reports, and is looking forward to more time on the farm.
