Friday Fun Farm Facts

A hive of bees flies over 55,000 miles to bring you one pound of honey. A honey bee can fly 15 miles per hour.

Honey bees must tap two million flowers to make one pound of honey. Each worker honey bee makes 1/12th teaspoon of honey in its lifetime.

Honey bees visit 50-100 flowers during one honey collecting trip.
