Beehive Grant Fund Announcement


NCSBA Chapter contacts, please share with your members.

Attention beekeepers of the NCSBA:

Many of us have heard about the Beehive Grant Fund which was approved this year by the NC General Assembly. The North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ Agricultural Development and Farmland Preservation Trust Fund officials have asked the NCSBA to forward information concerning the fund and how to submit an application to the members of the NCSBA.

Information has been posted at www.ncbeekeepers.org and the North Carolina State Beekeepers Association Facebook page. Interested persons should read this information in its entirety and email any questions to the Born and Bred Program chairman Paul Newbold at beefarmer1349@gmail.com
