NEW YORK — The New York State Bee Farm, a five-acre site in the town of Tuscon, was officially opened today, with a ceremony marking the completion of the $4.6 million project.
The project, which opened to the public this morning, was completed last year.
The beekeeper and his wife were welcomed in Tuscon at the site by Mayor Jose Hernandez.
The couple had been in a honeymoon with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who is the son of former President Jimmy Carter.
Mayor Hernandez said that as a result of the honeymoon, the mayor has had many opportunities to learn about the beekeeping process and the culture of bees.
Hernandez said that this project has allowed the couple to explore other aspects of the bee culture, including beekeeping in a natural environment.
The mayor said that he was proud of the dedication of the team of beekeepers who have worked so hard and sacrificed so much.
The Bee Farm is a private nonprofit that was established in 1999.
It was founded by Mike Breen and his partner, Peter Krampe, who are both beekeepers.
Breen was the first to commercialize honeybees, and he and Krampets have operated the facility since 1999.
They have beekeeping permits, and the bees have been certified by the New York Department of Agriculture for hives in the city.
The beekeeping operation is owned and operated by Krampen and Breen, who both reside in New Hampshire.
They said they plan to maintain the operation as a family-owned business.
Breen said that the bees are fed a diet of honey, and they have been treated to fresh water, and even live in a greenhouse.
The bees are trained to use a specialized hive box that they have constructed out of bamboo, which they said is much more environmentally friendly than other hives.
Brennan said that, in addition to beekeeping, the beekeeper also enjoys being outdoors.
He said that they had enjoyed the honey bees, and also the people and the experience they have in their day to day.
Berenan said that it was an amazing experience to work with the beekeepers and the bee garden.
He said that for the bee-keeping experience, the bees were not only raised by humans, but they are also cared for by people who are also farmers.
Berenan noted that the Bee Farm has been featured on ABC News and NPR.
