Honey Harvest: End of Summer Pollinator Walk with Fox Farm Apiary
Saturday, September 16, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm$10 – $15
Join Olana’s beekeeper Chris Layman to celebrate National Honey Month during this special pollinator walk. Chris will discuss how Frederic Church’s artist-designed landscape provides abundant nutrition for bees and will highlight key plants that help these special pollinators sustain themselves throughout the year. Participants will learn more about how Chris keeps Olana’s honey bees healthy along with the nutrition-rich flora that inhabit the landscape. This program will culminate with a honey tasting and an opportunity to purchase Fox Farm honey to add to your own pantry or picnic lunch.
Chris Layman, Cornell Master Beekeeper, manages the honey bee hives in Olana’s historic farm complex and together with his wife, Lisa, owns and operates Fox Farm Apiary in Greene County. Fox Farm Apiary manages several apiaries including hives at Greene Land Trust and the Woodstock Land Conservancy.
