Bee keeping at Ryedale Folk Museum

Volunteer Jim Wood was checking up on our resident bees yesterday and taking care of the hive.  He is confident that it will be a thriving hive in a few weeks and all is looking good!  Have a look at the great photos and the short film below to see what he was up to.  I can confidently say that honey fresh from the hive is delicious!
