Our club began in 1996 with a dedicated and experienced handful of people. We now have over 130 member families who raise bees, teach others about beekeeping, and sell their honey products. We contribute our time and information to the Catskill communities by participating in numerous events in Greene County. In addition to our hive products, our exhibition booths contain literature, posters, equipment, and an observation hive.
The purpose and objectives of our club are:
• Serve as a resource to local beekeepers.
• Educate the community about the joys, skills and fruits of beekeeping.
• Provide an outlet for the membership to sell member-produced honey and other hive products.
• Foster interactions with the agricultural community and other beekeeping organizations.
• Recruit new members.
