Acushnet honey bees.

What does a Apponequet Junior, a New Bedford Fifth Grader and a Mattapoisett Grandfather have in common? Acushnet honey bees of course!

Head Gardener and Chief Bee Keeper, Bill O”Keefe, is teaching Rosie and Sofia all about honey bees. How good is that? (Other photos HERE)

We are in our fifth season of growing organic vegetables and beekeeping. If you want to help us with our outdoor vegetable garden, drop-in and let us know!
