New documentary feature that journeys around the U.S. following migratory beekeepers and their truckloads of honey bees as they pollinate the flowers that become the fruits, nuts and vegetables we all eat. Admission is by donation.
The many challenges the beekeepers and their bees face en route reveal flaws to our simplified chemically dependent agriculture system. Director and beekeeper Peter Nelson and his team talk to farmers, scientists, chefs, and academics, who provide a broad range of perspectives on the environmental threats to honeybees, what their fate means to our food security, and how we can improve the outlook for both.
Before & after the film, enjoy meeting local farmers, including a honey tasting made from the pollinators that reside at Fox Haven.
Enjoy a taste of local mead by Orchid Cellar throughout the film.
Fox Haven Garden Tour & Tea Tasting to follow.
