Description

In this second recording, Keith tells a story about a purchase he made one Sunday long ago. He discusses beekeeping and says he was always fond of a nice piece of honey, but it was very expensive so he decided to start making his own honey. He began by buying two hives from a schoolteacher in Ballina, who taught him everything about beekeeping. He describes how beekeeping works, including the process of cultivating the honey. Bees are very sensitive to the weather and Keith also explains that he is accustomed to bee stings. He goes on to talk about the queen of a hive, and how the bees decide on a new queen. Keith is a member of the Irish Beekeepers Association and he produces honey for his business ‘Knocknarea Honey’.
