In the bee-ginning…

Annette Birman (Annie B) began beekeeping as a hobby in 1996 with a single bee hive. She currently has fifty hives (with the number growing) and a passion for beekeeping. Annie B started slowly with a small table of honey at her church fair. Soon she was selling honey and other products at craft shows and in various New England storefront locations. Annie B’s Farm, nestled on 2 ½ acres in Cumberland, RI, works exclusively with friendly Italian bees who have a reputation for gentleness and are excellent honey producers.
