For the Summer issue of Sun Valley Magazine, I wrote a story about honey and a beekeeper based in Hailey, Idaho.
I learned much about bees, including how do they know which hive is theirs? And, why is the queen not technically a queen?
Tom Harned, a former stay-at-home dad, started with 40 hives. Today he has 800 hives divided between Idaho and Montana.
From his Idaho bees, he bottles Five Bee Hives wildflower honey available at local grocery stores and used by many restaurants and food producers in the Wood River Valley. I hope you enjoy reading the article as much as I did researching and writing it.
