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, GloryBee’s Beekeeping 101 blog is a great resource. If you’re looking for more information, our Factory Store has a great selection of informative books that will help answer most any beekeeping question. If you need some immediate assistance, the Lane County Beekeepers Association is a superb resource that we strongly recommend you get involved with. 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 2018.
