We have a little farm with both bees and sheep.
On our little farm we keep bees and sheep. We keep the bees for pollonating and for a sustainable environment. If the bees are doing well we can get some of their gifts, like honey and wax. Out of this honey we make mead. Mead is an alcoholic drink (12-16%). In ancient times mead was called the “nectar of the Gods”. The wax will be used for making candles. Both the winning of honey and wax can only happen if the bees are happy and healthy!
We use the sheep for the maintenance of our terrain and for their wool (not for meat!). Sylvie uses this wool felt (hats, scarfs etc.). And our sheep love to cuddle!
Peter is the beekeeper, Sylvie is the shepherd.
