Business of the Month Cold Creek Honey 2078 Lone Star Rd Upton, KY 42784 The council invited the owner of Cold Creek Hon- ey and beekeeper Tamara Rahm, from Upton to speak about the importance of beekeeping. Rahm not only gathers honey from the beehives but she also sells beeswax blocks and periodically makes and sells bees- wax candles on her farm in Upton. "One thing that I think sets our hOney apart from oth- er producers is the fact that the bees forage primarily on native flora. Not just our farm, but most of the acreage that boarders the farm is either native, hay fields or pas- ture," Shared Rahm. "There is almost zero crop ground around us. A bee's home.range is 2 miles, though they can travel up to 6 miles if needed." Rahm started working with bees in the sprkzg of 1996 and said, "I didn't grow up eating honey and truthf.ul, ly was not in love with the stuff." "I was helping a friend of mine harvest honey from their colonies in the fall of 96 when I tasted my first local honey,, stated Rahm. "From that point on I was absolutely intrigued and I had also just purchased my farm that spring and wanted to know about all of the flora that was in this area." Roughly since 2006-2008 beekeeping has become another casualty in our global economy. It was the be- ginning of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) and the serious decline in the numbers of honey bees and the absolute decline in the overall health of our honey bees. According to the EPA website a Colony Collapse Disorder is the phenomenon that occurs when the ma- jority of worker bees in a colony disappear and leave behind a queen, plenty of food and a few nurse bees to care for the remaining immature bees and the queen. Once thought to pose a major long term threat to bees, reported cases of CCD have declined substantially Over the last five years. The number of hives that do not sur- vive over the winter months - erall indic or for bee health - has maintained an average of about 28.7 percent since 2006-2007 but dropped to 23.1 percent Tamara Rahm sells beeswax blocks and periodically makes and Sells beeswax candles on her farm In Upton.
