Apiary Session for Saturday February 20, 2021 – IS ON! See you at 1 PM?

Well, the weather is finally going to cooperate with us – sort of.  It’s forecast to be SUNNY and NO RAIN!  It is going to be a little chilly though – 40° – and  a little breezy.  So here’s what we’re gonna do: if you wanna come out, there will at least be a few of us there, if you don’t that’s ok – no harm no foul.  You may want to wait until noon on Saturday to make your final decision, and that’s cool (it could be snowing by then, or maybe in the 60s – who knows this winter).  So dress for it and we will give it a shot and cover some of your burning questions like: lighting a smoker (bring yours if you want to practice), assembling frames, bear fence installation stuff, maybe we’ll even throw together a hive stand (but we may wait till next week) and, of course, we’ll have a bee-less hive to demonstrate nuc installation.  So come on.

Our Apiary Sessions are held at Historic Johnson Farm located at 3346 Haywood Rd, Hendersonville, NC 28791. Click HERE for a map. The entrance by the sign is usually closed on Saturday so use the exit and park in front of the Interpretive Center.  The Apiary is in the back of the property so walk down the driveway and we should be in front of the equipment barn on the left.
