Ever wonder about beekeeping? It’s a growing interest for both commercial and backyard hobbyists as the importance of bees becomes a global concern. Florida, one of the leading honey-producing states in the U.S., is seeing a large growth in production – even as citrus greening hurts the apiarists.
Worm farming, known as vermiculture, also is growing. A new worm farm in Indiantown is run by a restaurateur who hopes to change the way restaurants deal with food and paper waste from their kitchens.
These farm stories, along with our favorite local product picks, a trip to a popular fruit stand in Florida City, and a talk with permaculture farmers, are in our Spring 2015 issue now hitting the stands.
