We love bees.
The world needs bees. Sadly we’re on the verge of losing hundreds of native bee species in the United States alone if we don’t act to save them. Without bees, our world will be a less colourful and more lonesome place. So we are looking to do something here at Solar Branco 1885 to help our little stripey friends, who need all the help they can get.
On our property, we are working on several initiatives to help build the population up. Firstly, we have a non-invasive hive that produces our honey. Secondly, we have “wild hives” which are not touched by humans. Thirdly, we are working to build an all-natural lake on our grounds to help the overall ecosystem in the area. We are also planting up local flowers and fruit trees so our friends have plenty of nectar, and finally, we are building several “bee hotels” on the property for those who are just stopping by to take in the flowers.
All of the above is in progress and we hope to be able to harvest and produce enough organic home-made honey to sell to guests in 2019.
