Beekeeping with Buzz Vahradian of V’s Bees

Saturday, March 17th from 9am to 3pm

Buzz (seriously, that’s his name!) will teach participants the fundamentals of beekeeping; providing a thorough overview for beginners with an interest in starting a hive and others just fascinated with the lives of these super organisms. 

Participants will learn about:

  • Honey Bee Biology
  • When and Where to Get Bees
  • Proper Equipment
  • Colony management
  • Diseases and Pests
  • Honey Harvest and Extraction
  • Properties of Honey

Buzz Vahradian is an experienced beekeeper with a farm in Wautoma, WI. They produce raw unpasteurized honey (actually, the bees do all the work). Their local nectar source is native wildflowers.

Cost of the workshop: $50 or $40 for members. Lunch and handouts are included in course fee. Advanced registration is required, please purchase your ticket here.



We Believe: 1) Food should be grown in a sustainable manner 2) People should know how to buy, grow, harvest, preserve, and prepare local foods 3) The public should know local farmers 4) Farmers should know who eats their food
