About your host

I'm co-founder of Apple Acres Farm and the beekeeper of our Italian honey bee hive. We introduced honey bees to our homestead back in 2017 and haven't looked back! I enjoy sharing my knowledge about the ins-and-outs of backyard beekeeping to help others better understand these fascinating pollinators.

What we’ll do

Before you put your beekeeping veil on, we'll first review the workings of a honey bee colony and the basics of backyard beekeeping. We'll discuss equipment, safety precautions for working around a hive, and steps you can take to prepare your own yard for beekeeping. You will then have the opportunity to experience and photograph a honey bee hive inspection.

What else you should know

Honey bees are sensitive to how people behave. Please bring a calm and curious attitude.
