Our special program for February will be a presentation by Steve Moeller on honey production with single brood chamber hives.  Steve Moeller lives in a rural area near Columbia, Missouri and began his beekeeping adventure in 1974. He currently manages 40-50 hives for the production of honey, beeswax and pollen. Steve is a past Secretary and Treasurer of the Missouri State Beekeepers Association and is an EAS certified master beekeeper. He believes that beekeeping is best approached as a life-long learning experience.
