Michigan Beekeepers Association 2015 Fall Conference

🐝🐝🐝 What fun we had at the conference!  It was held at the Great Wolf Lodge in Traverse City.  We had our honey judged (first time ever) and received the highest possible scores for honey density, color, and flavor. We’re quite incredibly pleased with those results!  We took classes about the Cottage Food Act, building bee houses, making creams and lotions, marketing, overwintering, queen rearing, bee management, and small scale pollination. I’m already anxious for winter to be over so we can start our next honey season. BTW – the Farmer’s Almanac predicts a milder winter, so maybe we won’t lose 50% of our hives this year. Fingers crossed.

And we did manage to find a little time for fun and sightseeing.

Tell you what, being a beekeeper is sweet! 🐝🐝🐝
