WATCH FOR OUR BEE-INTENSIVE CLASSES THIS WINTER!

Sponsor Your Own Bee Hive And Help Save the Food Crop

Although no one likes to get stung by a bee, these insects are critical — indeed essential — to human survival. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, bees pollinate 75 percent of the fruits, nuts and vegetables grown in America. Every four out of ten bites of food Americans consume are courtesy of the bee population. Unfortunately, as you may know, bee populations have been in severe decline for several decades for a myriad of reasons, including habitat loss, pesticide use, climate change, air pollution, and disease.

So what can be done? Hallockville Museum Farm wants to do our part to protect bees and at the same time raise awareness of the critical issue of bee decline — and that’s the motivation behind the Hallockville Honeys initiative. We are partnering with Chris Kelly of North Fork Promised Land Apiaries, who will be maintaining hives on Hallockville’s 28 acre campus. Chris is a master beekeeper with, believe it or not, 50 years of experience tending hives across Long Island and is an enthusiastic and passionate advocate for these important insects.

We invite you to take part in this initiative by sponsoring your own hive for $400 or by joining with friends and family and splitting the cost. As a sponsor, you will learn about bees from a veteran bee-keeper, be there for the installation of your hive and take part in a “blessing for the bees” and honey harvest activities.

We urge you to join this important program by either going to our website, hallockville.com, or calling our office and leaving a message at 631- 298-5292.
