As announced in last month’s newsletter, we have two summer apiary visits to look forward to.
Spaces are limited and will be reserved on a first-come-first-served basis to fully-paid DSBA members. If you would like the opportunity to take part please complete the individual link, the sooner the more likely you are to secure a place! We will let you know one way or the other sometime in early May.
John Mellis Visit – Saturday 18th June 2022 from 11.30am until mid-afternoon
DSBA have been invited to visit John Mellis honey extraction and bottling process facility in Dumfries, followed by a bring-your-own lunch at South of Scotland Beekeepers Association apiary which is nearby. You will need to make your own transport or car share arrangements.
John Hoskin Visit – Sunday 26th June 2022 from 2pm to 5pm
John Hoskin has invited DSBA members to visit his apiary near Kincardine Bridge. John is a long-standing member of DSBA and has a wide knowledge and experience to share. You will have the opportunity to handle bees, observe his queen rearing process, and ask lots of questions. Refreshments will be provided. There is ample parking and toilet facilities. This visit offers something for everyone, whether you are a new beekeeper or a veteran.
