Seems like something new starts blooming every day at this time of year. There are still a few blueberry flowers holding on, but most of them have turned into sprays of berries that get rounder and riper while we look at them. The effects of our rejuvenation pruning of the past few years are easy to see on every bush, and we look forward to tasting those first luscious fruits towards the end of the month and sharing them with you at farmers markets and pre-picked here at the farm. If you have blueberry bushes, this is a good time to renew your mulch and remove weeds from the base of the plant.
Our spring schedule of beekeeping workshops is complete, but we continue to offer individualized apiary experiences. Suit up with one of Blue Pearl Farms' beekeepers and work with our bees as we answer your questions about beekeeping. Visit our Beekeeping page for the Beekeeper's logbook and more information. From splitting hives to queen propagation and questions about keeping healthy hives, we help you develop your own beekeeping practice.
Wildflower honey, our buzz line of skin products, beeswax candles, and more are available at farmers markets in the area at the Pearl and Charleston Farmers Market on Saturdays and on Tuesdays at the Mt Pleasant Farmers Market beside Moultrie Middle School off Coleman Blvd. You can also order online. Volunteers welcome We welcome volunteers here, and work side-by-side with you in the blueberries or demonstration garden. Take home some honey or other farm specialties, or a privilege pass to the 5th annual Lowcountry Blueberry Jam and Blueberry Festival on June 21.
It's easy to schedule a farm tour or event for your group or family or a special class or workshop for your group of five or more. For details, contact email@example.com or call us on the farm line at 843-887-3554.
