The Bee Hotel
Pollinator insects are a necessary ingredient for any sucessful farm. They pollinate the flowers which become vegetables. Pollinator populations are in drastic decline, so we are doing our best to help. Our bee hotel is home for hundreds of solitary bees. These small bees are harmless to people. They don't swarm, sting, or bite. The straws pictured have holes in which the bees lay an egg, fill with food, and seal it shut for the winter. In spring, our army of tiny vegetable makers will emerge.
