In addition to the classroom training, our last class participants took a field trip to Honey Run Farm. The owner, Isaac Barnes, welcomed our guests and provided a very instructive narrative on the history of this bee yard. His presentation encourages those attending to start small, grow slowly and develop a business over time. Isaac than toured the group through his hives, demonstrated honey extraction, discussed colonies, and ended the tour with the bee yard where all the products are made.
