The field day was organized by David Kunz of Mill Creek Apiaries , an extremely-knowledgeable and honest bee-keeper. His farm is a family-owned, small-scale bee farm in NJ. They use essential oils and natural methods to take care of their hives. They have an adopt-a-hive program, and through it, we have adopted a bee-hive. No, they will not be located in our garden, though they do allow such opportunities. It is just a program for those who want to support local sustainability and are concerned about the pollinators.
Native flowers and wild flowers are everywhere in the farm. Many orchards, fruit and nut trees can be found in the farm. We saw so many butterflies of humongous size -- bright reddish-orange, yellow, black with blue marks and the common cabbage butterflies. Frogs, dragon-flies, bees and other flying-and-buzzing insects were everywhere. Native grasses ran wild there. Weeds and wild native plants were everywhere and there lied the beauty of that farm.
