We hope all of you are having a wonderful holiday season, and looking forward to having some time to spend with your friends and families. As you know the holidays of Christmas and New Years fall at the end of the week in 2020. Our shipping partners also have an increase in demand due to holiday shipments. CurrantC has decided it is best if we hold of of on shipping frozen products until after the holiday season is over. We always want to ensure that you receive the best quality product If you place an order for them and you are in a neighboring state we will ship on a case by case basis. Sorry for the inconvenience. We are still striving to ship all other products in a timely fashion.

Honey Bee Swarm Season

It’s swarm season here on the Currant Farm. Honey bee swarms occur in the spring as a way to naturally increase the population throughout the area. The queen will take about 50% of the workers in a hive and leave to find a new home. They’ll land on a tree branch or on some structure while scouts go out to find a suitable tree cavity. They can stay in this mass for a day or sometimes a couple of days. One of my favorite things to do this time of year is to capture wild swarms.

Cheers from the Currant Farm,
