Geezer Ridge Farm in Hedgesville, West Virginia is home to thousands of honey producing bees that are giving veterans a chance to learn about bee-keeping. For many of those veterans the practice is also a form of therapy. Geezer Ridge is one of six apiaries in West Virginia working with the West Virginia Warriors and Veterans to Agriculture program, which serves more than 250 veterans in the state. The program gives veterans the opportunity to take on a new career in agriculture while experiencing life-saving therapy.
