Coffee Break

River Yard

In the spring of 2022, I was enjoying a work-from-home opportunity and participating in a zoom meeting. It was a warm day and so I had the window open to enjoy some fresh air. Suddenly, I became aware of a persistent hum and realized that a swarm had come out of one of my hives and landed in the neighbor's yard. Fortunately, a break was called right then and after throwing on a veil and grabbing a box, I was able to shake the swarm into a new home. I even made it back to the meeting before the break was over. 
Even though they started 2022 as a new swarm, Coffee Break built up extremely quickly and produced nearly 100 pounds of extra honey capable of being harvested. We are looking forward to what they can do next year.
