Meetings/Events 2019

Here’s what’s coming and where you can find us.

The Surry County Beekeepers meet on the 2nd Monday of the month at least 10 months of the year. We have 2 Saturday field days – spring and fall – held at the apiaries of some of our members. We get together for a picnic in the summer and for dinner at a local restaurant in December for Christmas. You can also see us at local events and talking about honeybees in the area schools.

Regular meetings start at 7:00 pm at the NC Farm Bureau Insurance Office at 112 N White St, Dobson, NC 27017
