MISSOURI STATE FAIR AUG 10-20
Want to win a blue ribbon?
We’re looking to see how many club members are interested in participating in the Missouri State Fair’s Apiculture contest. Participants package their honey and hive products to be judged during the fair in August.
If we have enough interest, our blue ribbon winning board members will give you the inside scoop needed to compete.
As we’re getting back to a more normal existence, post Covid times, EMBA’s major programs and events are being restructured to support our continued growth.
QUEENS + NUCS. Unfortunately the EMBA is not offering nuc’s or queens to our members this year.
ALTERNATE SUPPLIERS. Isabee’s in Fenton is taking orders for bees and queens. You can reach Jane or her staff at 314-894-8737.
You can also check out Bordelon Apiaries in Louisiana at 337-988-6644. They have been a long-time queen supplier to the EMBA.
Bee Friendly MO License Plate
The Missouri State Beekeepers Association has made it through some challenging steps to make a beekeeping license plate available, and now it’s time to show our support. By the end of June, we need 200 people to register their SUPPORT for MO to have a Bee preservation license plate. Signing up does not commit you to purchasing a plate.
