In addition to existing hardwood and softwood forests, Tom has also created a tall-grass, wildflower prairie as a valuable resource for the farm’s bees and other pollenators. More than five million bees populate Tom’s seven bee yards in central Ontario. Braestone is thrilled to have Tom set up our bee apiary and keep a fatherly eye on things.
