For almost a decade, we have partnered with Massaro Community Farm in offering hands-on beekeeping workshops from March through September.* The first & only apiary workshops conducted on a CSA farm site in Connecticut, these focus on best practices in maintaining healthy colonies in Langstroth hives, with particular attention to the monitoring of honey bee pests and diseases.
Bring your Beekeeping Questions
Our workshops are open to the public and donations are accepted at the apiary site. Massaro Farm is located at 41 Ford Road, in Woodbridge. Because of the popularity of our March and April programs, particularly to new beekeepers, we offer two sessions of instruction and pre-registration is required. The remaining workshops are conducted in one early morning session.
Onsite Training and Hands-on Beekeeping Activities
Appropriate attire is necessary: long trousers and long sleeves. Veils will be provided, or bring your bee suit. The workshops are weather dependent and dates/times are subject to change. Please check back for changes or cancellations prior to attending.
