Before starting my own bee farm I worked for two other apiaries. One was a small farm and the other had 3,000 hives. I cared for bees, gave tours, bread queens, and was told I couldn't be a beekeeper because I was female.
In this episode I tell the stories from my 7 years with these companies and witnessing Hawaii go through a terrible collapse of the bee population when the varroa mite arrived.
