Carolina Farm Trust's Dinner Series presents Dancing Bees Farm and RockSalt Charlotte.
Honeybee pollination is critical to our food chain, contributing nearly $20 billion to the value of U.S. crop production, and certain crops like blueberries and almonds would not survive without it. For many others, crop yield and quality would be greatly reduced without honey bee pollination.
Jeff and Robin of Dancing Bees Farms currently have their hives on two organic produce farms and would like to continue to provide pollination services to local farms in the area who have expressed interest.
Currently, Dancing Bess has 80 hives, but before the cold snap last January, Dancing Bees Farm had over 100 hives. They have since lost almost 40 percent of their hives and are hoping to have 130 hives soon. Every new hive costs $175 to add.
