Welcome to the Tuscarawas County Beekeepers Website!

Please join the Tuscarawas County Beekeepers Association for our next meeting on Thursday, June 11, 2015, at 6:00 p.m. at the Winfield United Methodist Church, 5247 State Route 516, Dover, Ohio.

It's going to be movie night for our next meeting!  Bring popcorn, snacks and drinks for a viewing of "The Monk and the Honeybee".  The movie runs about 90 minutes.  We will start the movie at 7:00 pm promptly, so try to get there a little early.  Here is a description of the movie:

This is a delightful biography of Brother Adam, a 90-year old Benedictine monk, who at the time was the world's greatest beemaster. He spent his lifetime trying to breed the perfect honeybee: a bee that was at once industrious, prolific, gentle, disease-resistant, and able to withstand cold winters. Brother Adam is considered the greatest monastic geneticist since Gregor Mendel.

From his cell in Buckfast Abbey, Devon, England, Brother Adam is seen directing an incredible global enterprise. He has scoured Europe, the Middle East and Africa in search of genetic material from which he has synthesized his world-famous Buckfast bee. The film culminates in an extraordinary expedition he makes to Mt. Kilimanjaro in Kenya to find another strain with good genetic potential.

This program was filmed in rural England, the German Alps, Sweden, and the mountains of Tanzania.

Following the movie, we can discuss what we saw in the movie, and we will have a very brief business meeting.

All regular meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month beginning at 7:00 p.m. at the Winfield United Methodist Church, 5247 State Route 516, Dover, Ohio. We hold a short business meeting and a discussion on beekeeping and often have guest speakers. We make sure to have snacks and fellowship too!
