This issue’s cover features a row of beehives at Oregon Trail Farm. Tom Parker captured the photo in rural Leavenworth during the Summer Fun Farm Tour Series. KFU member Ken DeVan added beekeeping to his efforts at Oregon Trail Farm to help boost the pollination of the berries available for U-Pick. He paints the hives to help the wooden boxes stand up to the elements. Ken also numbers the hives to better track production of the thirteen hives he currently manages. An area surrounding his pond is filled with flowering plants bees use as an additional food source.
