About the event

Would you like to know more about bees? Swarms? Swarm Captures? How to properly hive a swarm? Would you like to tour our education apiary?

We'll explain how you can get FREE BEES! We'll also tell you about why we ABSOLUTLY DO NOT capture and sell swarms, we don't sell cutout bees, and we NEVER sell "emergency" queens.

We'll  review a variety of equipment give some tips and tell you exactly what to have ready and on hand when you "get the call" to go get a swarm!

PLEASE NOTE that if YOU decide to go catch a swarm, it is on YOU to do so safely, for yourself, and for those around you!

*Note: Please bring your own protective wear, with a veil being the absolute minimum if you'd like to tour the education yard and any active hives! You will be attending in an outdoor setting, at a working mini farm, with all fo the dangers and risks you could assume. Please note that by attending you are accepting any and all risks in doing so, and are also accountable for the safety and behavior of any guests. All guests must be over the age of 12 unless special permission is given, and there is an adult with any younger guests AT ALL TIMES! Again, this is an outdoor setting, so please consider visiting the restroom etc. prior to arrival. There are a number of fast food places, gas stations, truck stops, and retail stores within 5-10 minutes of our location, that will be open for business prior to and at the time of this brief class! Also, pictures and video may be taken and by participating and by being present you are consenting to having your image and voice used as desired by so please keep that in mind! In the event of rain, we will conduct the class in the barn, at the end of the drive past the greenhouse where the general parking area will be.
