Pollination Station and Bee Hive

Did you know?
Beekeepers act as veterinarians for their bee colonies, protecting the health and well-being of their bees as well as any surrounding colonies and the honey that comes from those colonies!

VDM's long-standing Bee Corner is sponsored by Charlottesville Family Magazine and our dedicated beekeepers, Karen and Ken Hall. The observation bee hive allows visitors to enjoy watching the bees while learning just how important bees are to daily life. Without bees we would all miss peanut butter, jelly, many fruits and vegetables – even our morning coffee. While you are in our Bee Corner you can visit our orchard, harvest seasonal crops, and sell them in our Farmers' Market.
