Best Practices

Adopt the ideas below to set yourself up to be a successful beekeeper.



Keep Bees

Ongoing Education

To gain a comprehensive understanding of beekeeping we highly recommend you join us at monthly club meetings and attend the annual beekeepers workshop in February.



Honey Bee Health Coalition

Check out the attached guide from the Honey Bee Health Coalition to get a better understanding of the practices that will keep your hive healthy and happy.

Taking Notes

No matter what type of hives you use, or beekeeping methodology you follow, one common trait shared by good beekeepers is TAKING NOTES. With notes you can accurately understand next steps or get help from a mentor.



Working with a Mentor

The EMBA Mentoring Program assists new beekeepers in developing their beekeeping skills by introducing them to an experienced beekeeper who will help them one on one during their first year.
