Seasonal comments: The Dog (Bee) Days of Summer

July, August - The Dearth! Winter is not the only time bees starve. If your honey bees are light on food, you need to feed them. The number of flowers available to them is greatly diminished this time of year.

Happy Beekeeping!


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of one of our fellow beekeepers and members, Rudy Hoffman (January 15, 1942 - Thursday, April 23, 2015). Rudy was such a kind soul and mentor to so many of us. He'll be greatly missed. [Obituary]

We are a small association of peers dedicated to furthering the knowledge of and interest in beekeeping in Franklin County, North Carolina.

Our club sprang to life in late 2007 due primarily to the efforts of Larry Green and a small group of people he recruited to help him. Franklin County has been until now, and may have always been, without a beekeepers association.

We are young, but rapidly growing. If you are interested in joining, please contact one of us or simply show up to a meeting. We'd love to have you.

Where we meet...

We meet 7:30pm on the last Wednesday of every month at the Franklin County Cooperative Extension located at 103 S Bickett Blvd, Louisburg, NC 27549.
