GloryBee is keenly aware that April is a critical month for beekeepers! At this time we are making plans to manage bee package pick up on April 23rd and 24th in a drive thru fashion to minimize person to person contact. Our on-site classes will be offered in video-format online, and those wanting more detailed instruction can sign up for classes with the LCBA. If you have ordered bees from us, you will be receiving more details via email soon. We will not be holding any additional public activities on April 23rd and 24th.
On Friday, April 23 and Saturday, April 24 from 8:00am to 2:00pm, GloryBee will host its Annual Bee Weekend! To ensure the safety of all beekeepers, Bee Weekend 2021 will be drive-through pick up only.
