Seasonal comments: BRR! It's cold! It's Wet!!!
January, February: Honey bees can handle cold if they are well fed. Honey bees CAN NOT handle cold and wet! Make sure the bees have a bit of ventilation and that their lids are not compromised. Make sure there is food for them! And definitely try not to open the hive when the temperature is below 60

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.
