The honeybees at Spring Valley Student Farm are owned and managed in collaboration with the UConn Beekeeping Club. The farm is home to three to six full-sized beehives annually. Hive boxes are visited once or twice each week for routine inspection and maintenance.
'Bee' Part of the Action!
No previous experience is necessary to get involved with beekeeping at Spring Valley Student Farm!
UConn Beekeeping Club holds regular meetings and trips to the hives during the academic year, as well as summer hive care. All club events are beginner-friendly and appropriate safety equipment is provided. Please wear closed-toed shoes and long pants to hive visits and wear a baseball cap if possible.
