Brookfield Bees is participating in the Vermont Fresh Net/Dig In VT Open Farm week. We will be open Saturday August 10th and Sunday August 11th, 11am to 3pm for visitors interested in beekeeping and local honey. Our honey is unprocessed, with no heating or filtering so you get all the good things honey can provide.
We have a huge collection of honey from all over the country and all over the world. This year we have additions from Northern Thailand, Saudi Arabia, Holland and the rainforests of Indonesia. Visitors will have an opportunity to taste any honey they want and compare it to our local Brookfield honey.
So come meet the beekeeper, check out an observation hive, talk about swarms, find out how bees survive the Vermont winter, learn which flowers bees prefer, and find out why honey from the supermarket just cannot compete.
We also sugar in the spring, and you will have the opportunity to taste all of the Vermont syrup grades to find out which one is really your favorite.
