We will have top flight presenters from all over Texas including Dr. Rangel from Texas A&M and Mr. Mark Dykes the Chief Apiary Inspector. In addition please note we have added another presenter, Tanya Phillips, to provide instruction on top bar hive management!

There will be a special 2 hour morning session for beginners covering where to buy your bees, apiary locating, package and nuc installation, equipment you will need, how to feed and general management. Questions will be encouraged. In addition there will be a concurrent morning advanced session of 2 hours if you are more seasoned. It will cover the four golden rules of beekeeping, nutrition and disease management, requeening strategies, comb rotation and swarm prevention and control.

In the afternoon you will be able to select the four best presentations for your situation out of 12 being offered. For a complete list of classes go to

There will be three vendors offering bee equipment, books, supplies, top bar hives and queen and package sales.
