Renee and I have made some pretty amazing friends along this journey we call the Barry farm. Each enterprise that that we are involved with has a back story that always has mentorship in it. With sheep we lean on Alan McAnally and John Hodge. For red wattles there is sweet melissa parker and for bees our dear friend Jenny Scott. Jenny makes her living doing what she lives to do. Saving honey bees and helping home owners. Jenny does and specializes in honey bee extractions. When bees move into houses , businesses, trailers and the like she cuts them out and removes the bees alive with a bee vacuum. Once removed she finds a new home for them (most hives end up back at her home ) but some lucky friends she shares her bees with.
Last night Jenny and I rehived 5 new hives for us at the farm. Not only did we bring bees home to the farm, but I’m grateful for all of Jenny’s patient teaching. Each time I’m with Jenny I learn so much. Passionate people can’t help but teach. It is a common character trait of passionate talented people.
