Welcome to the Northwest New Jersey Beekeeper's Association
We are dedicated to promoting the general interest in the support of bee culture. Our branch, made up of 100+ members primarily serves Hunterdon and Warren Counties. We are one of the ten branches of the New Jersey Beekeepers Association.
Woodenware - Beekeeping Equipment + Honey Tasting + Q&A,
Date: Friday February 24th
Time: 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Location: North Hunterdon Regional High School Cafeteria A
We often provide a little something and we ask that you do too. A little pastry or snack is would be very welcome. Please let EDA know if you're bringing something via email.
We are planning on showing the finer points of preparing woodenware. Hive boxes, frames and other equipment. If you have some equipment you want to assemble, bring it along.
We will have hive jigs, tools, and hardware for assembly on hand.
This year we are going to bring honey jars from a number of sources and do a different honey tasting at every meeting.
Our February honey tasting is going to be some honeys from Hawaii or Ethiopia.
February is the promissory note to spring. It is time for final preparations in anticipation of warmer weather.
As always we will encourage a lively Q&A and Networking and we'll provide the guidance for beekeepers for February.
