A group of visiting students from Virginia Tech joined the Ecological Foundation and resident agriculturist, "El Rubio" in removing the colony and transplanting it to the Foundation headquarters.
The bee removal team arrives.
El Rubio removes the decorative ceiling to reach the colony(see title image). The Ecological Foundation doesn't do carpentry but it does renovations.
Once a month we carefully extract the honey from our colonies and bottle it for sale. We don't add any additives, chemicals, or colorants, our honey is 100% pure from the local forests of Punta Cana.
WHICH IS WHY WE WON THIS YEAR'S HONEY CONTEST!
PUNTA CANA FOREST HONEY IS OFFICIALLY THE BEST HONEY IN THE COUNTRY!
Visitors can buy Punta Cana Forest Honey at the Ecological Foundation from 8AM - 4PM or at our Farmer's Market in PUNTACANA Village every other Saturday beginning at 9AM. All net proceeds benefit the Ecological Foundation's environmental initiatives. You can also schedule a visit to our apiary.
