2018 RABA Field Day

After postponing several times due to inclement weather, the 2018 Richland Area Beekeepers’ Association Field Day was held Saturday, June 2, 2018 at Dave Duncan’s apiary in Crestline, OH.  Mother Nature rewarded RABA members’ patience with beautiful weather and cool temperatures.  Check out the many photos and videos in this portfolio.  You’ll see several beekeeping demonstrations, a unique free-form hive, a bee log opening and extraction, Dave’s special guest, and examples the highs and lows of beekeeping.  There’s even a video of Dave’s unexpected opening ceremony.  🙂
