America’s Grow-a-Row is excited to be installing 20 beehives at our Pittstown headquarters farm in the Spring, 2021. In addition, we’ll be installing a 1-acre pollinator field next to the hives.
Thanks to our partnership with our friends at Hawks Hollow Honey in Milford, we were able to secure 8 pounds of seed to grow the entire pollinator field. The donation was made possible by The Pollinator Partnership. The seed is from Applewood Seed and includes 16 varieties of wildflowers.
We are expecting an additional 75,000 pounds of apples this year because of the bees pollinating our orchards.
