Saturday March 1st at Rare Earth Goods in Ishpeming is a Mead tasting experience put on by John and Melissa. They own and operate the Upper Peninsula's only meadery www.algomahacreshoney.com.The tasting will begin at 2:00 PM. See you there!
A recent article Pondering the Winter of 2013/14 on the MBA website www.michiganbees.org written by Steve Tillman is a really good summary of the last couple of beekeeping years. Although there may be some some geographical differences, I think it pretty well "nails it". I like the crazy people.......beekeepers.....farmers thing also.
Check the Superior Beekeeping Club page for details of the ordering tomorrow night at the Marquette Food Co-op.
The snow keeps piling up!!
Help everyone find other beekeepers in the UP.Click on the Upper Peninsula Beekeepers Map page to enter where your bees are (or will be after you get them this spring).I think it will be interesting to see where we are now and watch the spread over time. Please help to spread the word whether you have your own bees or have an interest /passion for our pollinators.
