August Field Trip

August 4, 2018 - 10:00 AM

Log Cabin Bee Farm
1050 Oak View
Hellam

We’re going to try something a bit more adventurous this year for an August meeting. We’ll be venturing to Bill Sprenkle’s Log Cabin Bee Farm. He operates an impressive queen rearing operation there and we’re going to learn about how he does what he does. This is an excellent opportunity to learn what goes in to raising queens on a commercial scale, how real experts select their genetics, and how that queen you purchased last month came to be. Refreshments will be served after the tour.

The address is
Log Cabin Bee Farm,LLC
1050 Oak View Lane, Hellam PA 17406

Bill says the GPS will bring you to Oak View Lane. At the top of the hill bear right. The bee yard is on the right side of the lane. He’s also said to bring your protective gear…at least a veil.
