The Virginia State Beekeepers Association will be convening at Ferrum College in Ferrum VA for their meeting this year on Friday the 16th and Saturday the 17th.
This event is a great opportunity to hear world class speakers and meet beekeepers from all around the state of Virginia. With the meeting being so close to us – just one county over in Franklin County – it really is a prime opportunity for all of you to come and learn from the hundreds of people sure to be in attendance. There will be workshops as well as presentations, so come out, learn, and become a better beekeeper!!!

This coming month’s meeting will be an “open meeting.” We will be going over the status of this year’s honey crop and seeing who is and who isn’t pulling supers as well as generally sharing stories about beekeeping over the past few months.
Be sure to bring pictures and any harrowing tales from the bee yard as we mingle and enjoy each other’s fellowship. As always snacks and drinks will be provided, all are welcomed to contribute to the assortment of refreshments.
As always all walks of beekeepers are encouraged and welcome to attend from the most novice to the 30 year vet!
Despite what some of you may be telling yourself no beekeeping question is “dumb” and no bee story is “boring” please come attend and share with us Thursday night at 7pm!!!
