Looking forward to attending workshop. This is my second year as a bee keeper

#5 I really enjoy your workshop, and the vendors are great, looking forward to the show this spring

Starting beekeeping this spring. Looking to attend the Tricounty convention in March. If you have helpful hints drop me a line. Thanks.

Looking forward to attending the class on the 28th! 

I am a new member to the Association and only in my third year of beekeeping. I just wanted to thank you all for the work that you do with bees - which has permitted an organization like this to even exist in my area. I greatly look forward to the workshop this spring and learning, sharing, and networking with good folks!

Does anyone know if you can have an apiary in Wooster (inside city limits)?

Yes i am a new bee keeper and am learning as i go, I have learned a ton and loving it, but was wondering if there is anyone with far more knowledge than i to come and check my hive and give me some pointers, I think my hive is getting ready to swarm, and i sure could use a little info. Planning on attending the next meeting and hope to grow a great deal as a beekeeper. thanks john

We were able to attend your Spring Workshop this year. As usual it was outstanding!!! So smooth. From the doorman, through registration, beebag, guide, vendors, workshops, doorprizes- there wasn't a speed bump along the way. The morning pecan rolls, coffee, box lunch, beverages were delicious! I've attended for three years and always leave feeling re-energized, excited and a bit more knowing than when I arrived. Thanks to all of you who worked so hard to make it memorable.

Hi All,
Thanks for this site, its great. I am a New-Bee, so all the info I can get will be helpful.
One suggestion or question I have is, there are barely any addresses here, except one I had to hunt for regarding meetings. Where are the workshops held, i.e., beginners classes, Spring workshops, etc. Are they all at the same address Garrison Circle? Maybe I missed something, but I sure had a hard time finding location. Thanks for the site and all your dedication. Our bees are in distress and I am excited to try and help. Being a newly retired nurse, I guess its in my nature.

Thank you for your kind remarks and your suggestions on our website. The Beginner Beekeeping Class and the monthly meetings are all held at the OSU/ATI Honeybee Lab which is located on Garrison Circle. (Gossard off SR 250 will bring you closer to the doors) The Spring Workshop is held at Fisher Auditorium and Shisler Center which are located at 1680 Madison Avenue (SR 250) Wooster, Oh 44691.

Loved,Loved Loved the 2016 workshop.

Thank you for your comments!

To those who don't know George Taylor died last year June 9th. The business remains in operation and taking orders for 2017 package bees. I'd like to thank everyone that new George for their prayes and condolence. He always looked forward going to the bee meetings talking with old and new beekeepers. He would always say "You will never stop learning about honeybees as long as you live".

Thank You
Susan Taylor (wife)

#24.1 Eli Troyer of Dalton, Ohio has pollen for purchase. I believe the cost is $10 per pound for 30-40 pound purchase. 13922 Arnold Road Dalton 44618 is his address he is Amish so therre is no phone but a letter works well or personal visit but he may or may not have the quantity you desire in stock!

TCBA and all of beekeeping will greatly miss George and his passion for beekeeping!

can we buy pollen again. We loved George he was so funny always gave us a $2.00 bill. We sure do miss him,but we need pollen.

The number I have for Waldo Apiaries is no longer working. If you shop elsewhere for pollen just be aware of the source and/or origin of the pollen you are purchasing. I think that may be a good topic for the newsletter. Thanks for your inquirey.

Wish we could have had a great time at the workshop like others seemed to have had, but we got the TCBA jerk who was extremely rude to us. His words and actions were totally uncalled for, and we will not be attending any workshops, meetings, etc. again. What a shame that you let someone like him represent you. He did you no favors.

#29 I am so very sorry your experience at the workshop was so bad! I would ask you to give us another chance to show you, we as a club are not represented by one individuals actions. Please consider attending the 2019 workshop as our guest by contacting us directly at I hope you will give us a chance to show what the club is all about! Again I apologize for the disrespectful treatment you were subjected to.

Are these people still around? they cashed our check after they told us all the packages were sold, and promised nukes - then we could never get in touch. this year all numbers are disconnected.

#43 It is my understanding they are out of business.

As a child My Father had a small lot of land where He had a few hives and as a kid I wasn't interested in them. Now that I have grown up and retired, I'd like to have a few hives as a hobby. I'm looking for Apiaries who sell and ship to the Canton, Ohio area. You can reach Me at Thanks for your help

Stark County Beekeepers Association (SCBA) Meets the first tuesday of the month in Massillon. You can get to their website at I am sure you would be very welcome to come to the next meeting. There will be many there who would be glad to help you get started in beekeeping.
