Did you know that you can keep bees in your backyard? Even small urban yards (or roof tops!) can play host to a hive of honey bees, and the folks who tend them can enjoy honey, beeswax, pollen and of course, the bees themselves. In fact, a healthy hive can produce several gallons of delicious, healthful honey every year.
