Enjoy a Family Day of Fun: Clovermead's Bee Olympics

If you're in Ontario or even beyond you may want to reserve Sat, 23 July 2011 (or rain date 6 Aug 2011).

Clovermead is once again holding Bee Olympics which will also include a bee beard competition.

Families will enjoy a day at Clovermead touring their heritage buildings, historic beekeeping equipment, and seeing Canada's largest observation hive.

Several hives can be safely viewed up close from behind glass or screening (see last year's blog post).  Outside there's plenty of entertainment for the children.  Even our seen it all teenagers had a great time.

I hope to see you there!

Wow looks great! That is a lot of supers! Do you find that the bees fill them all up on the single brood chamber hives?

Yes the bees fill the supers. There seems like a lot of them because last year I waited until fall to extract the honey.
