Landi Simone, owner of Gooserock Farm LLC, in northern New Jersey, will share her experience as a commercial beekeeper, turning the products of her ~100 hives into premium varietal honeys, artisan honey spreads, beeswax cosmetics and handmade beeswax soaps. Landi will share her tips and tricks for boosting production and honing marketing strategies, as well as recipes and manufacturing techniques she has fine-tuned over the years. This is a perfect and well-timed lecture for anyone thinking of ramping up production, or simply looking for gifting ideas from the products of your hive.
Landi has been an Eastern Apiculture Society Master Beekeeper since 2004, and serves as Chair of the Master Beekeeper Certification Committee for EAS. She is committed to beekeeping education, teaching an annual beekeeping classes for twenty years, and presenting workshops at both EAS and various bee clubs.
Landi’s practical approach to beekeeping stems in part from her background; she is a retired consulting civil engineer with degrees from Columbia University and Rutgers. She finds her second career in apiculture every bit as challenging as engineering — and a lot more fun.
