Missed out on beekeeping school this year or need a refresher? Check out our ongoing series “A Year in Beekeeping”, a step-by-step video guide which starts with package installs on both foundation and drawn comb, and continues through the rest of the season. We hope these segments will be a useful resource for those who were looking forward to their beekeeping class as a refresher or are brand new to beekeeping. This series is currently available to view on our Facebook and YouTube pages. Enjoy!

Open Hive Saturdays (Cancelled due to COVID-19 until further notice) begin May 9th for the eighth season and occur on the 2nd Saturday of the month.  These are free educational events held from 10:30am to noon in the demonstration bee yard with the explicit purpose of teaching bees hands on and in the hives.  Remember to bring your veil.

Forget something or have a swarm and it's after hours, no problem.  Just give us a call and we'll gladly meet you at the store! If you have questions, that's no problem either as a beekeeper is on site during business hours.  Have you seen our metal mouse guards?  We run them on our hives year round and they continue to be one of our best sellers!

Thank you all for visiting us and sharing your bee stories.  We value the relationships we've developed with our customers and yes, we get it, when you get excited talking about your bees, it's a safe zone, we love our bees too!  It's great knowing so many others are just as passionate about their hives.
