About Little Beehive Farm
About the Farm
When I started beekeeping in 2004, I decided to call my home Little Beehive Farm. I own just under an acre of land in a suburban community west of Boston. I manage to pack a lot in this little farm; 4-6 beehives, a big vegetable garden, a large array of beautiful woody shrubs, trees, & perennials, 2 beautiful dogs, and an every changing number of chickens. I am in the process of redesigning the land so that it can truly become a sanctuary from not just the worries of the world, but the worries of the mind.
About the NameBack in the mid-70s, my mother was working for the nuns at Saint Adalbert’s as a seamstress. She would make, sew and do alternations on the nun’s habits. One of the nuns was an older Polish nun. My mother did amazing work for the nuns. She was a beautiful seamstress, often designing her own cloths. This Polish nun told my mother that our last name, Lulek, meant little beehive. Ul is the Polish word for beehive. So go back several generations, and maybe just maybe, my ancestors in Poland were beekeepers. I like to think so. So it was destined for me to become a beekeeper I think. I know that it resonated with me from the moment I started and I took to it like bees to nectar.
