Iowa Beekeeping and Honey Production
Honey bees are at risk around the world. On today's Talk of Iowa we’ll discuss bees, bee behavior and biology, why we need them, and why they’re in jeopardy. We’ll also talk about beekeeping as a hobby and the business end of honey production and pollination. Guests are the State Apiarist, Andrew Joseph, beekeeper Jesse Randall, a professor at Iowa State University, and honey-producer Curt Bronnenberg of the Spring Valley Honey Farms of Perry.
