(used to feed bees in late winter or early spring if they are in danger of running out of honey)
Here is a link to help protect your bees, orchards and gardens from overspray and drift.
We recommend that beginning beekeepers take a beekeeping class. We will post classes in Missouri as soon as we receive the information. If you are putting on a class in 2018 or have information on one that we don't have listed, please let us know. We can be reached at (660) 214-0132 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Crooked Hill Beekeeping currently plans to attend the classes in Maryville, Columbia, Macon, and Independence. We offer free delivery of supplies and equipment to all classes and bee club meetings that we attend. We regularly attend meetings in Macon, Braymer, and Laredo. When possible we also attend meetings in Smithville, Kansas City, St. Joseph, Sedalia, and Columbia.
