Upcoming Beekeeping Course


Fall is the perfect time to get educated about bees!  No only does it give you a few months to prepare, this is also the best time to purchase your bees for the spring.  With a wonderful increased interest in beekeeping, suppliers are selling out before we even reach the first of the year!

We are hosting our semiannual Beekeeping Basics Program.  During this program, beekeeper and entomologists will teach you the basics of keeping bees from what you need to buy for equipment to what resources your land should have to help the bees survive.  Other topics include: where to purchase bees, using bees for your ag tax exemption, and what to plant to provide food.  We cover all you need to know to get started.

The course is October 9th from 9-3pm, with two options for a field day (where you will learn the most!) on Oct 10th in Adkins and Oct 11th in Leon Springs.  You choose which day and location work best for you.

Lunch is included, with special honey tasting treats!

We always fill up, so please register soon!
