SIBA Beekeepers Picnic
September 23 @ 7:00 am - 4:00 pm
This year, Mike Bentz will host the SIBA picnic in Brookville. Cider making will start at 7am. People can bring their own, cleaned/washed apples to press if they choose. He'll have 15-20 bushels of his own to run through the press. Come watch, partake, and enjoy some fresh cider.
We eat at noon. Menu: Fried Chicken and potatoes. Bring a side dish to share! Bring a cooler with ice to keep your cider cold on the way home if you bring your own apples. Bring your own chairs too.
Bring your veils. After lunch, we'll do hive inspections and then Mike will do a garden tour. If enough interest, we can visit his farm 7 minutes from his house in Blooming Grove for more bee stuff.
