Davie Beekeepers – 40 Years of Service
As reported in the Journal West, the Davie County Beekeepers Association has been helping members enjoy the hobby of beekeeping since 1972 and is part of the North Carolina State Beekeeping Association. The state association has been around for almost a century, and is the largest state beekeeping association in the country.
Friendly neighbors and helping hands
In addition to the information you glean from this course, you will have the opportunity to meet other beginning beekeepers as well as some “old-timers”. You’ll make contacts with local beekeepers who can provide answers to future questions as well as continuing support. You can find a mentor to help you with your new adventure, and club members can even help you “install” your first package of bees or capture a swarm.
