We have just loved our move to downtown Weaverville – what a warm, welcoming community we have come into. Join us to celebrate honeybees, their amazing overwintering journey, our first year at our new location – and YOU, our awesome customers! We will have drinks and snacks as well as raffling off (1) package of bees! A package includes 3 lbs of bees and a queen. To enter the raffle, you can buy tickets at the shop for $5 each! We will be announcing the winner at 7 pm that night. If you do win and are not present, we are happy to give you a call and let you know! We will see y’all there!

Hands-on dates are TBA – we will offer multiple dates throughout April and June. The new beekeeper will find this invaluable in gaining comfort and confidence around a hive.
