Samantha has been beekeeping for five years. She caught bee-fever and hasn’t even tried to find a cure. Now her Runamuk Acres is one of only two farms in Maine to be certified as Bee-Friendly. She is now the president of her local beekeepers association; speaks and teaches about bees, beekeeping, & pollinators; and is often found in the beekeeper’s booth at events.

Listen as Samantha talks about creating a habitat that helps bees & other pollinators – whether you have a hive or not and how she is moving away from mainstream methods of beekeeping into more natural methods. I enjoyed learning about how she starts a new hive, and that the worker bees might actually fire their queen and raise a new one.
