How are you involved in agriculture?
Farm Crops, Farm Other

Ferrier's Maplebee Farm is a small company we started in 2012. We started small with 11 hives and 300 maple taps just to see what we where up against. After that first year we where hooked. We find it quite rewarding an relaxing which is a hard thing to find in a business/job. In 2014 we increased to 110 hives and 600 taps in the trees. 2015 will be another expansion hopefully to 1000 taps and 150 hives and we are going to sell 50 nucs or small hives in the spring to help with the money needed for the expansion. We are planning on making a living this year on the the money our farm produces which is very exiting and scary at the same time. You don't know what mother nature is going to throw at you. I guess like all other types of farming you just need to learn to adapt.
