MORGAN FREEMAN TURNS HIS 124-ACRE RANCH INTO BEE SANCTUARY 03/25/2019

Iconic actor Morgan Freeman recently converted his 124-acre ranch in Mississippi into a bee sanctuary. The actor first began caring for bees in 2014 and recently imported 26 beehives from an Arkansas farm to expand his insect sanctuary. At the ranch, Freeman feeds the bees and allows them to engage in their activities as pollinators without harvesting their honey. "There is a concerted effort for bringing bees back onto the planet," Freeman said during an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Show. "We do not realize that they are the foundation, I think, of the growth of the planet, the vegetation. . . ." The actor is planting bee-friendly vegetation such as magnolia trees, clover, and lavender to help the bees thrive. "I have not ever used the beekeeping hat with my bees," Freeman said. "They haven’t stung me yet, as right now I am not trying to harvest honey or anything, but I just feed them . . . I also think that they understand, 'Hey, don't bother this guy, he's got sugar water here.'" (vegnews.com)
