The Eastern KY Winter Bee School will be in its 10th year in 2019, having offered a series of classes to beekeepers in topics ranging from queen bee production, swarms, candles and lotions, bee diseases, honey production, and more.  Attendance at this school has been a consistent 150-175 attendees.  As the first beekeepers' school of the year, the Eastern KY Winter Bee School has aimed for a high caliber of speakers to keep attendees returning each year and also to stay abreast of national initiatives impacting beekeepers.  Beekeepers from WV, VA, and TN also routinely attend this school.
