Well the honey bees have arrived at Clean Slate Farm and the hives are buzzing.

The bees arrive in what is called a nuc, short for nucleus hive, which contains roughly 1,000 to 2,000 honey bees, which we set up next to the hives they would eventually take over as their home. Here is a YouTube video of us opening up the nucs the day before we install them into the hives. I did get a slow motion video posted and you can see that here.
