I have read about it after becomming a beekeeper, but thought to wait for the perfect momment before I share it with you guys. As I believed that I should first help to raise awareness about our tinny heroines. Reason for that is simple. Afterwards, it will be easier to understand this noble move! And here it is, it came, let’s see what is the Morgan Freeman’s 124-acre honeybee ranch.

Morgan Freeman’s Honeybee Ranch
Morgan Freeman became interested in Beekeeping back, way back in 2015. His beekeeping adventure started with the awareness of their importance. After which Morgan 26 beehives from Arkansas which he placed on his 124 acre (more than 500.000 square meters) ranch in Mississippi USA. As he stated in famous interview, with cheering live audience, he does not take honey from them at all. Rather due to, what as a beekeeper I understood, lack of available food, he feeds them with sugar syrups.
