    Last month we harvested our first honey from the beehives on our Kasiisi School Farm – 10 litres. Not a huge harvest but our hives are new and the dry season has been quite wet which affects the yield. It was a magical experience, very dark with wonderful stars and very cross bees. Our mixed-blossom honey is amazing –  with slight tartness balancing the sweetness. We wish we could bring some back for our supporters to try.  These photos show
