Status and information about Saturday, April 19 pickup: Please check here for up-to-date arrival information. We will post our travel back along I-95, so you can know when we expect to arrive.
If you are only coming to pick up and not staying for the demonstration, please plan to arrive next Saturday between 12:45-1:30pm or 3:30-5:00pm. That way you will not need to wait with the masses and we can get you loaded up and on your way. If you plan to arrive after 5:00pm next Saturday, please email us to let us know.
That afternoon, Harold will be selling pollen patties, jars for bottling, spray bottles for sugar water, and some medications. There will also be queens available. Ed will be selling bee-friendly plants--providing forage for bees to visit during those hot and dry summer months.
Do not park on the grass at the Peter Wentz Farmsted park. You can park along both Shearer Road and Schultz Road, or in the Peter Wentz Farmstead parking lot (gates close at 4:00pm). Please do not drive up the driveway to the house--unless you are dropping off people that need help walking or have already been given your packages and are ready to load your vehicle. If you park in the driveway, you may be parked in for the entire day!
Enough of the rules...please come and say hi to your fellow beekeepers. One of the additional benefits of beekeeping is sharing your stories and passion with others.
Please do not bring back used packages. We can no longer recycle them. You will be asked to take them back home with you.
