Want to save on shippings costs for Queens?
I will be traveling to Lincoln/North Woodstock on the weekend of August 18th and 19th.  I am able to bring queens with me. This will save you the $25 shipping cost.

URGENT NOTICE:
Fellow beekeepers, if you recently received a notice from your electric company that they are going to be spraying herbicides, please know that you have the right to tell them not to spray on your property. Herbicides are not a benign, harmless chemical. They endanger us, our animals, our honeybees, our water supplies, our farm crops and flowers. They are a known cancer causing agent. PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD! TELL THE ELECTRIC COMPANY NO HERBICIDES!
