At the Surry County Beekeepers Association (SCBA) July meeting, Blue Ridge Bee Supply presented the group with a four-frame honey extractor for use by members of the organization. Blue Ridge Bee Supply has been supporting the Surry Beekeepers since opening in north Mount Airy and has been a major sponsor of SCBA special events including the annual picnic and holiday party.
Surry County Beekeepers meet the first Monday of each month (except in August and December) at 7 p.m. at the Surry County Cooperative Extension office. Bee school is generally held in the spring and SCBA also conducts two field days a year where new beekeepers have an opportunity to get some hands-on experience. Meetings are free and open to the public. Blue Ridge Bee Supply offers a free monthly practical beekeeping workshop at their location the first Saturday of the month at 1 p.m.
