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.
About Our Association
Beekeepers from Benton, Stearns and Sherburne counties of Central Minnesota .
We meet monthly at the Whitney Senior Center, St Cloud MN 1st Tuesday of the
Month [Feb - Nov] (Check Meeting Calander)
March 4th at 7:00 PM
If you are interested in ordering more packages, please let us know soon. Our treasurers are helping at the meeting with gathering the money for bee package orders; if you won't be at the meeting, you may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
At the March meeting, I propose that we talk about hive stands, boxes with and without cleats; screened bottom boards versus unscreened bottom boards; and slatted racks. If you have equipment that you like, you should bring it--especially if it is home made.
See us at the Benton County Fair at the Heritage Building. We display our
equipment and tools, sell honey produced by our members, and answer all of your
questons. We also have demonstrations Saturday and Sunday afternoons on how honey is extracted from the comb.
