Beekeeping in Connecticut: DC Honeybees Donates Another Hive VIDEO

My Brother Ben, who lives in Darien, Ct,  has taken an interest in beekeeping, and to capitalize on it and to expand our own activities we partnered to create the Georgetown Honeybee Company.  The New York metropolitan area is fertile territory for new beekeepers, with a strong focus on sustainability and a rich combination of both urban neighborhoods and large suburban lots.

Creating Ben's apiary ahead of spring seemed appropriate, so DC Honeybees took one of the smaller rooftop hives, broke its ten full frames into two nucs, and drove the bees north to Darien.  The following video shows both the installation and Ben's preliminary orientation.
