• Selfies by Irish farmers - #felfie All media About to build a new house on property (with natural building techniques, still in design process). One of first steps, however, was to move the bees' hive. Just suited up & moved their hive cross town, under the cover of darkness... The sage bundle & shamans blend helped calm them down (they're sort of somewhat aggressive hive). First we tried with dried bamboo leaves & no smoke & they crawled out, started to get upset. When we returned with soft grass & blew some sage smoke, they went back in their hive. We stuffed their door with grass, ratcheted their hive together, wrapped in bed sheet & drove to a bee keeper friend we know, about 3 miles away. There they were set in her yard on top of a new empty hive. We gave them 10 mins to readjust & calm down after trip & then removed some grass so they can now leave the hive. So here we are pre-trip, minus gloves & John drove to friend with his hood on.
