All about growing berries with Dave Marchant.
Jeffrey Hamelman began keeping bees in 1982, or perhaps that is when they began keeping him. He has been an avid hobbyist since then, keeping up to eight colonies at his home in Hartland Four Corners, Vermont. He has been a member of Vermont Beekeepers Association for about 30 years, and was the Association's Secretary for about five years. For the past few years, he has co-taught free beekeeping classes from April through September at the VBA South Yard in Ascutney, Vermont. Talking about bees, teaching people about bees, and working with bees is a great and fulfilling pleasure.
P.S. He's a world-renown Master Baker and author!
