Tri-County Beekeepers



Did you know? Honeybees provide pollination for the majority of food that you eat? All fruits and vegetables, nuts, flowers and best of all Honey! Becoming a beekeeper is a educational, fun and exciting hobby or small business. You can produce and sell Honey, Candles, Wax, Pollen and many other items. Our club has many people who will go out of their way to help you through the processes.

Beekeeping is practiced all over the world, honey has been found in pyramids dating back thousands of years. Amazingly the honey recovered is still edible. Honey does not decompose like other foods, it just turns to a stable crystal structure waiting to be turned back to honey.
