Legendary State Bee Inspector Bill Sheppard Visits!!!


The Stanly County Beekeepers Association will meet on Thursday, October 11th, at Union Chapel United Methodist Church (old US-52 South of Albemarle), at 6PM.  We will have a Pot Luck Supper, and the business meeting will follow at 7PM.
Bill Sheppard will then give a presentation on winter management of colonies (and whatever else pops into his head).  Be advised that Bill is retired now, and we don’t get much opportunity to enjoy his uniqueness.  He is one of a kind, and if you haven’t met him, you should do so.  This is a bucket list item for all area beekeepers.
Besides his knowledge of bees and beekeeping, his story telling and humor, and his gregarious personsality, Bill has a legendary appetite for home cooking, so all you cooks out there:  Let’s give him a true Stanly County Feast.

About Carolyn Patricia Allen

I used to breed purebred Nubian dairy goats so I could make goat milk bath and beauty products with their milk. All of our products are made with 100 percent fresh goat milk. When I 'm not making soaps I write about life on the farmstead and care for our other critters. Most of them produce marketable products: chickens, goats, and horses give us fertilizer for our organic garden, chickens give us eggs, but the bees produce the most goods. I bottle their honey, make candles, lip balm, skin creams and lotions with their beeswax. My husband and I recently took a One Stroke painting class with Vicki Galloway so now we can paint the hives and make a few signs for the ranch.
