Trying to remove the honey from the frame, Elsa shows her brother Zack an easier way to use the uncapping fork to remove the honey. “We started because of COVID actually,” Elsa said, explaining the addition of the beekeeping project to her work this year. With more free time because of COVID, the Freises decided to try out the beekeeping project, helping the county to update its out-of-date hive and get new bees. Elsa checked the bees’ food supply and the health of the hive, while her mom and brother and the Farris family inventoried all the beekeeping supplies that were in extension storage. Zack, who also did beekeeping this year, plans on continuing the beekeeping project after his sister leaves.
