Stars who like bees profile.

Carol Drinkwater most notably played Helen Herriot on the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small. A series about small town veterinarians in the 1930-40's.  I really enjoyed this series.  In addition to her entertainment career, she also owns an olive farm. 

Carol became a bee advocate after her farm's bees inexplicable died like so many other bees. One could say she's risen to the level of bee advocate.  You can learn more about Carol at her web site

New Employee

We got a border collie puppy this fall. Her name is Kate. 

She'll work the sheep on the farm when she gets a bit bigger.  Kate comes from a long line of sheepdog trial champions. The championships include the US National, the Scottish National, and the International. Her great great grandfather was one of those champions.  Here is a video of him running  a trial.
