The Empire State Honey Producers Association Inc Fall Meeting is scheduled for Nov. 16 and 17. For a look at the Fall Newsletter and more info about the meeting go to

The speakers are Tom Rinderer, Steven Coy, and Michael Bush. Friday's talks will be about Breeding Resistant Bees from three different perspectives.

Saturday's sessions will feature three talks by Michael Bush, while there will also be a session of the Bee Wellness Workshop which has been working this year to teach beekeepers across the State of NY about disease, disease identification and managing their bees. ESHPA was granted monies from the USDA which we had to match to pay for this program. More info on the website.

There will be a display room for many vendors such as Dadant, Brushy Mountain, BetterBee, and Kelly Co.

I hope to see many of you there.
