I've been keeping this blog for all of my beekeeping years and I am beginning my 19th year of beekeeping in April 2024. Now there are more than 1300 posts on this blog. Please use the search bar below to search the blog for other posts on a subject in which you are interested. You can also click on the "label" at the end of a post and all posts with that label will show up. At the very bottom of this page is a list of all the labels I've used.

Even if you find one post on the subject, I've posted a lot on basic beekeeping skills like installing bees, harvesting honey, inspecting the hive, etc. so be sure to search for more once you've found a topic of interest to you. And watch the useful videos and slide shows on the sidebar. All of them have captions. Please share posts of interest via Facebook, Pinterest, etc.

I began this blog to chronicle my beekeeping experiences. I have read lots of beekeeping books, but nothing takes the place of either hands-on experience with an experienced beekeeper or good pictures of the process. I want people to have a clearer picture of what to expect in their beekeeping so I post pictures and write about my beekeeping saga here.Master Beekeeper Enjoy with me as I learn and grow as a beekeeper.

Talk on Preparing Honey and Wax for Competition

I was invited to the Southeast Organic Beekeepers Conference in February.  I actually taught three workshops:  one on preparing honey and wax for competition, one on harvesting honey in my simple crush and strain way, and one on making lip balm and lotion.

Brendhan, the head of the conference, taped the talk I gave on preparing honey and wax for competition.

It's here, if you'd like to see and hear it.


  1. How cool! I'll go check it out!

    I think he has 2 copies of the honey talk in that movie - is the wax talk available to view?

  3. He does have two copies - if you scan through the second copy the wax talk is at the end. I don't know why it wasn't on the first copy of the film.
