What's good for the beekeeper, isn't always what's best for the bees.

I have 18 acres of clover, chicory, dandelions, grass, alfalfa and insects that is never sprayed. I'm surrounded by "conventional" corn fields. The chickens have always been free range. I generally only feed them when the snow covers up the corn... The corn isn't organic, but the chickens only eat it to get through the winter and they don't know it's not organic...
