Dan Price, creator of Sweet Virginia, has welcomed me to his farms several times this summer. Every time I go, I learn more about beekeeping, bee maintenance, hard work, bee stings, and honey! As the mentor of GW bee initiative, he is fulfilling his job priming me for any honeybee curve ball that might come my way. These photos are from his farm near Reston, Virginia. I have been building and painting many a bee box as well as doing the rounds checking on the hives.
