The Florida Bee Farm" is a mini eco-farm located in Clearwater Florida and completely solar powered. Our eleven hives of pampered (spoiled) honey bees produce delicious local honey. We utilize organic growing methods with naturally made compost and tonics to repel pests. Irrigation system fed by a rain barrel collection system powered by solar electric.
While working at the Bee Farm the other day we had one of our cool neighbors stop by with her Macaw which was a rescue bird. This is the lady who rescues animals and owns hedgehogs, flying squirrels (occasionally) and a few other exotic animals as well as the "Magic Cat" who occasionally stops by to inspect the Bee Farm. The story behind Magic Cat was explained on an earlier blog entry.
I was lucky to hold the Macaw for awhile while visiting with the neighbor. An interesting bird for sure.
