ACBA Marks the End of Another Year with Our Annual Banquet November 11, 2021

ACBA Marks the End of Another Year with Our Annual Banquet

November 11, 2021

As seen by the beautifully decorated cake (right), our end of the season banquet was held with a great turnout of members who also enjoyed a scrumptious brisket smoked by Randy Baldwin, as well as numerous side dishes so that no one “left hungry!”

We now go into diapause - entomologically speaking for hibernation - until March of next year. But that doesn’t mean we don’t stay connected with any beekeeping issues, so if there are questions about what you should be doing to keep your hive(s) healthy, drop us a line here!

Local Beekeeper Video

From ACBA member Helen Baldwin: I'm sharing a beautiful video done by Maddee Burt, a rising senior at UNC Chapel Hill.

- Maddee, along with other students, coaches, and professors, arrived in Ashe County last month to document some local stories. Maddee chose beekeeping.

- The video features our own Jim Rash and Kim and Wayne Pitts, new (and very productive!) members of ACBA.

- My Bee’s Keeper is just under 4 minutes long. You’ll be sorry when it ends!
