Prepping for Winter
Sept/Oct: The goldenrod may still be blooming but is in decline or gone. Bees need to have solid nutrition to build out their fat bodies for new bees... the winter bees. This is critical. Watch for light hives and feed if need bee. :)

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.
