Cory Stevens comes to us from his 27 acre farm in Bloomfield, Missouri; which he manages for wildlife and pollinator habitat. Cory and his wife Jaime own Stevens Bee Company where they have selected a VSH line of bees they call "Missouri Mite Hunters." Cory is a Past President of Missouri State Beekeepers Association. He was certified as a Master Beekeeper by the Eastern Apicultural Society in 2013, and earned a MS in entomology from University of Nebraska - Lincoln. He was trained by Sue Cobey in 2014 to instrumentally inseminate queen bees. Cory slips bees into random conversation with strangers, and annoys his wife by constantly talking about bees.


Join us at our monthly meetings to learn more about bees and beekeeping. Meetings are FREE!
