About This Photo Beekeepers harvesting honeycomb near Fair Haven, Vermont Tristan Winpenny (left) of Pawlet, VT uses a bee smoker to calm a hive of honey bees while he works with the bee keepers of Old Mill Apiaries to harvest honeycomb which will later be extracted into raw honey. These particular hives are destined to be shipped to Georgia (Fall), then to California (Winter), and then a return voyage by tractor-trailer back to Vermont in Spring. The bee hives will be rented out to farms in California's Central Valley where local apiaries (bee colonies) continue to suffer from a dramatic and yet unexplained die-off in bee populations known as Colony Collapse Disorder. The Honey Bee is the official Vermont State Insect and is not only responsible for producing thousands of gallons of honey each year but is also a vital source of pollination to most flowering plants and agricultural crops.
