Honeybee jamboree offered at Brewster museum

Beekeeping is alive and buzzing in Cape Cod, and especially in Barnstable County, where Brewster is situated. The Barnstable County Beekeepers Association (BCBA) is a 35-year-old group of more than 200 honeybee enthusiasts from Cape Cod and the surrounding area.

Today, Saturday 10 October, from 1.00 to 3.00 pm the fourth annual Honeybee Jamboree is being held at Brewster’s Cape Cod Museum of Natural History.


The cost is $3 for members and $2 for nonmembers (with museum admission).

This special event is co-sponsored by Barnstable County Beekeepers Association. Members will present demonstrations and sell their bee-related products, such as honey, candles, ointments and lotions.

Members of the museum bee group will explain the honey extraction process and provide information on beekeeping and honeybee hive activities, and current concerns.
A share of the profits of the event will go to the museum.
