Beekeepers of the Northern Shenandoah 

We are a group of beekeepers in the northwestern corner of Virginia who are dedicated to increasing public awareness about beekeeping and the valuable role of honey bees in nature and agriculture. 
We promote the art and science of beekeeping. 
 
Are you curious about bees, interested in learning about raising bees, or are you already a beekeeper? We'd enjoy meeting you!
