Please join us for the next Wisconsin CRAFT Field Day: Beekeeping Basics
Date: Tuesday, October 21st, 2014 (Please dress for outdoor weather) Time: 1pm-4pm, Potluck at 4pm Location: LotFotL Farm, W7036 Quinney Rd, Elkhorn, WI 53121
Prepare yourself this fall for raising bees next spring! LotFotL Community Farm will host a field day on beekeeping. A small panel (ranging from hobby to professional) consisting of Rick Sallmann, Walworth County Beekeeping Club president John Kendall, and April Yuds will discuss topics such as what it takes to get started, what, when, and how to feed bees (including recipes for biodynamic honeybee tea), and mite/pest management techniques. There will be a hands on display of basic equipment, including small scale honey extraction equipment, and you will take a tour through a Langstroth style hive (minus the bees). There will be plenty of time for Q&A and following the field day will be a potluck allowing for more one-on-one time with the panelists.
