We started bee keeping in 2011 with one hive from a swarm, then a second one.  Over the years the number of hives has fluctuated arriving at 11 this year.  A couple of years ago black bears moved to town.  The electric fence is the only hive protection that works here.

These photos are from the bee yard here at the orchard.
