Bee’s wax is available at the stand in 2 oz. packages. Here are links to recipes for lip balm and moisturizing bars that you can make at home.
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.
