Bees and Berries- A Great Combination – video

Bees and Berries are a great combination

This is a video about part-time farmer Jeff Kynaston and how he produces and sells berry and honey products. It shows scenes of his work as he tells of his satisfaction in growing boysenberries, raspberries and blackberries; picking the berries only when they are fully ripe; selling them within two days of harvest at farmers' markets and shops: and using those not sold for jam. He explains why he started keeping bees and how he produces and sells fresh unheated honey straight from the hives. The video lasts for 2:38 min and in the latter part Kynaston wishes he could afford to work for himself full-time growing berries and keeping bees and advises students that growing good berries is best learnt by trial and error.
