Beyoncé recently revealed that she keeps two large beehives o her property, which house around 80 000 bees combined.
According to the 39-year old hitmaker, the bees make "hundreds of jars of honey a year."
"I know it’s random, but I have two beehives. Real ones. I’ve had them at my house for a while now.'
"I started the beehives because my daughters, Blue and Rumi, both have terrible allergies, and honey has countless healing properties," said Beyoncé.
Beekeeping is the latest addition to the many ventures that Beyoncé, her daughters, son, and husband Jay-Z have pursued.
Beyoncé has complete ownership over her music, movies, and Ivy Park clothing line.
When asked about the importance of ownership she said: "Owning my films, clothing lines, and masters is important to me. Your songs, your image, and the way you conduct business do not have to be created from a commercial point of view or a male point of view.'
"You can decide what success looks like for yourself. Being number one does not mean better quality. And commercial success certainly doesn’t equate to being impactful."
Other celebrities who keep bees include, Marvel star, Scarlett Johansen, Morgan Freeman and the Patron Saint of Animals, Pope Francis
