Club member, Bill Mac MacIntosh, hosted 20 beekeepers at his beautiful apiary in Little Compton.
We opened hives as he talked about single brood hives, queen rearing, bee nutrition, winterizing, benefits of 9 frame honey supers and a plethora of other topics.
Ed Lowe offered a honey harvesting workshop in Mac’s barn demonstrating hot knife wax removal and proper frame loading for extraction.
This was our first apiary hive opening event in 3 years and could not have been any better!
