September 28, 2021 @ 6:30 pm
Topic: A Brief History Of Modern Beekeeping
Guest Speaker: Jeff Bradley
Jeff will give a brief history of Modern Beekeeping, starting in the middle half of the 19th century with the development of the Langstroth Hive (vertical hive) & Layens Hive (horizontal). Move through the evolution of the hives, the advantages/disadvantages, permutations. Ending with what we have on the farm and our experiences.
Jeff has several different hives on his farm and is using a phone app that tells you information on your hive by the sound of the hive.
