Busy Bee Farms: Part Two

Our second visit to Busy Bee Farms in Kismet Kansas takes us for a tour of internal workings of the greenhouses that produce literal layers of tomatoes,  as well as lettuce, cucumbers and other vegetables. Pond plants and koi fish provide some tropical looking landscapes on our walk-through.  We'll also get the buzz on the insect population that helps pollinate and protect the produce and plants.


 

The Nelsons use bumble bees to pollinate their greenhouse plants, and the Wichita Eagle recently published an article about a Marion couple working to save bees- one hive at a time.
