Queens Available Now...Just Call or Email

Packages Will Remain Available for Saturday, April 19. Please email all orders before Thursday noon.
No need to call, just email the information on the form.

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.

Hands-on Beekeeping Class

If you missed the first class or are just starting the classs, we will have a make-up hour between the two classes. The class will be from 12:30-1:30, stay late for the morning class or come early for the afternoon class.

CLASS ON SUNDAY, MARCH 23, WILL BE AT PENNYPACKER MILLS.

Pennypacker Mills is located at 5 Haldeman Road, Schwenksville, PA, 19473. If you are heading west on Skippack Pike (PA 73), go several miles beyond Skippack, and before you reach Schwenksville, you will see a sign on the right for Pennypacker Mills--the Perkiomen River will be on your left as you are driving along Skippack Pike (PA 73) and if you cross the bridge over the Perkiomen River, you will have just missed the road on the right. The park entrance is immediately on the left on Haldeman Road. Enter the park and follow the signs to the lot at the very top of the hill. The classroom is just below the parking lot at the top of the hill. (Visit www.montcopa.org/index.aspx?NID=928 for more information about Pennypacker Mills.)

This course is scheduled for five Sunday sessions from February thru July. Only 25 people for each group of classes will be accepted and advance registration is required. Spaces are still available. Give me a call.

The instructor is committed to present a knowledgeable and enjoyable, interactive, and intensively hands-on workshop. We are friendly and encourage you to contact us throughout the course for advice, help, or a sympathetic ear.

Become comfortable opening and working your hives, touch bee’s shoulders to get them to move over, hive a swarm from a crabapple tree, bring your honey to extract on the last class, and inspect hives―there will be hives set up with typical beekeeping problems such as laying workers―and resolve any problems found. All this plus beekeeper camaraderie and tasty appetizers.
