Bee Suits For Kids

We are excited to announce a new program designed to encourage our kids to learn more about honey bees.

We know that protective clothing is an essential component of beekeeping, suits can be costly, and our kids outgrow them in no time.  As a result, our club has purchased four child size suits (one of each size) and gloves.  Suits will be made available, on loan, to members.  

The duration of the loan will vary depending upon demand.

  • Please remove hood and wash the suit prior to returning.  
  • Do not wash the hood.  
  • To borrow a suit call or text Charlene Mello at 508-728-0887.

If you have a child’s suit that they have outgrown please consider donating it to the club to help this program expand.  

Let’s include the future generation of beekeepers as we spend this spring/summer in our hives.

A special thanks is extended to Ken Pearl, Plymouth County Beekeepers’ Association, for his inspiration and recommendations.

The club has purchased glassware in bulk, making it available at a good discount to club members.  1lb and 2lb jars, with lids, are available to Members Only in the Club's Online Store. 

Distribution of glassware will be on Saturday, June 10th JUNE 17th at a location in Somerset, MA. 

More details about distribution will be forthcoming.
