We had a great time talking with local beekeeping veterans as well as all of the new recruits! Whether you started beekeeping for the honey, the pollination, or just as a hobby, it was nice to meet everybody and share our love of beekeeping.
If you have any questions regarding your bees, our Beekeeping 101 series is a great resource. Our store has a selection of informative books that will help answer most any question. If you need some immediate help, the Lane County Beekeepers Association is a superb resource that you should utilize. Also if you’re not a member, now is a great time to join. Finally, if you missed out on packaged bees this season, call our sales department at 1-800-456-7923 to reserve a spot for 2016.
