I live in the country on a small farm. We have livestock and will soon have bees. I will build fence around hives to keep livestock away.
I am planning to plant crops for the bees. I have to consider appropriate forage for the livestock (particularly sheep). I will be planting some buckwheat which is an excellent pollen/nectar source and is suitable for sheep to feed on. By the way, if you haven’t tried it, buckwheat honey is a dark/bold flavored honey - it’s great ! Do you have any suggestions for other crops that will safely serve dual purpose for bees and sheep ?
