Growing food is all the rage. When Williams & Sonoma recently launched an agrarian section in its catalogue, I knew the trend is far reaching. Their mobile henhouse has gotten a lot of coverage and the organic vegetable beds are good, but it’s the beehive that makes me happy.
I have posted on beekeeping a few times. Thanks to my friend Lisa of BeeHaven Honey in Locust Valley, NY, I am dedicated to helping save the bees and want to learn more about the process. Williams & Sonoma’s agrarian push may very well help this cause and hopefully more people will take up beekeeping. You just need one hive, although I am told, one usually leads to a few.
We grow organic lettuces, onions, shallots and raspberries for the best pies.
