Pickens County, South Carolina
The Pickens County Beekeepers welcome you to beautiful Pickens County! We keep bees here at the edge of
the Blue Ridge Mountains. It is a fascinating occupation and we invite you to join us in learning more about
bees and beekeeping.
Come join us at 7:00 pm the second Thursday of every month except July, at the Pickens Presbyterian Church,
311 West Main Street, Pickens. Park in the western-most lot (large lot) and enter All Saints Hall through
the glass doors, past the church office, on the cemetery side. For directions, click on the link.
The next Pickens County Beekeepers Association meeting is: 11 April 2013

OK, I had an inch of snow on 16 February - how about ya'll? Anyway,
my red maple is just starting but some of my friends at lower altitudes
have had red maple for a couple of weeks already. I saw a red bud in
full bloom in Easley last Wednesday too.
Speaking of flowers and plants - it's important for you to know
something about what is growing around your beeyard. Is it a good
honey plant? When does it bloom? How close is it? Where can your
bees get good pollen from? (Remember: little pollen = few bees, bees
need a variety of pollens to get a good balanced diet) You need lots of
bees to pollinate your garden or to bring in a good crop of honey, so we
have to look out for them. Let's have a wonderful spring and a great
Notice Board -
Do you have questions about building a honey house? Who
you can sell honey to? Your labels?
