Beekeeping Workshops

Hosted by the farm and conducted by the CT Beekeeper's Association, our beekeeping sessions run from spring through fall each year. the workshops take individuals through various steps of backyard beekeeping, from hive assembly and bee introduction to detecting disease and preparing the hive for winter. Beekeeping workshops have been converted to live webinars led by veteran beekeeper, Ted Jones of Jones Apiaries. Register by 5:00pm the day before the scheduled workshops in order to receive webinar login information.

Beekeepers usually receive $10/pp donations at these workshops. Please consider making a donation to the CT Beekeeper's Association on their website if you participate in a workshop.
