Participants can choose from twenty-four, one hour beekeeping workshops. The event is FREE to all beekeepers, but
registration is required for this special all-day event. You are highly encouraged to pre-register. For those interested,
we have arranged to have coffee and muffins for purchase in the morning. Also, we will have a BBQ lunch available for
$10 each. The lunch must be pre-ordered on the registration form below. In addition, ice cream will be available for
purchase at the event following lunch.
A schedule of speakers will be provided at the event. Workshop topics will be appropriate for all, from beginners to
advanced beekeepers. This is a live bee event, so we strongly recommend participants bring protective clothing and
wear veils while presenters are working hives. This is a policy of MBA and we want everyone to safely enjoy Field Day.
Because the event takes place in an open field, it can get hot. It is a good idea to bring a folding chair, sun screen, a hat,
and plenty of water.
We will have Better Bee, Brushy Mountain Bee Farm, and Mann Lake selling beekeeping equipment at the event. If you
place an order with them in advance, they can bring it to the event saving you a lot on shipping. Plan ahead and place
your order with these vendors!
This event is a collaborative effort with the University of Massachusetts, the Massachusetts Beekeepers Association and
the Franklin County Beekeepers.
