Nicole Gennetta runs Heritage Acres, a 2-acre hobby farm in Pueblo West, Colorado. She and her husband tend poultry, bees, a garden and orchard. She’s also a medically retired paramedic and firefighter who teaches CPR and community college classes. We’re excited to have her as our guest this week.
We chat about beekeeping, tending the various breeds of poultry on the farm, and how beekeeping can be therapeutic. Nicole also shares some cool tricks she’s testing out by growing hops to keep her bees happy.
