Morgan Freeman From Acting To Bee Keeping…. Really?

Morgan Freeman reveled he has converted his 124 acre farm in Mississippi into a refuge for honey bees. He also has just taken possession of 26 hives for his bees.

Freeman has a keen interest in helping to save the insects from extinction and has started to turn his home into a honey bee haven. He explains, “I just received, two weeks ago, 26 hives of bees, so I’m very busy… I’m beekeeping…”

“There’s a concerted effort to bring bees back onto the planet… We do not realize that they are the foundation, I think, of the growth of the planet, the vegetation… I have so many flowering things and I have a gardener too. Because she takes care of the bees too, all she does is figure out, ‘OK, what would they like to have?’, so we’ve got acres and acres of clover, we’re planting stuff like lavender, I’ve got like, maybe 140 magnolia trees, big blossoms.”

“I’ve not ever used (the beekeeping hat) with my bees… They haven’t (stung me) yet, because right now I’m not trying to harvest honey or anything, I’m just feeding them… I think they understand, ‘Hey, don’t bother this guy, he’s got sugar-water here.”
