An Important Message From 

Beekeepers of the Northern Shenandoah

If you are a property owner and have no interest in keeping bees yourself but would consider allowing a BONS member to maintain hives on your property, we would be glad to make those arrangements for you. You would be helping the overall environment, especially the honey bees!
Please contact us and we will be more than happy to give you the details. .
