Welcome to the Tuscarawas County Beekeepers Website!

Please join the Tuscarawas County Beekeepers Association for our Annual Field Day and Summer Picnic.  This event is scheduled for Saturday, July 11th, 2015. 

The Field Day will start at 9:00 a.m. and will be held at the Wirt Apiary, located at 1102 Brandi Drive SW, Strasburg, OH.  Here are some of the things we will be doing this year:

  • hive inspection
  • making a split (if conditions are right)
  • live demonstration on how to treat for mites with Oxalic Acid
  • answering any questions you may have about working with bees 
Please bring your protective clothing (a veil at a minimum) since we will be working in a pretty busy bee yard.

The picnic will follow the Field Day, and will be held at Deis Hill Park in Dover, OH, from 12pm-3pm, at Shelter #1.  The Association is providing hamburgers, hotdogs and buns.  Please bring a covered dish or dessert to share.  Also, we are asking folks to bring your own beverages and table service.

We will also be holding our traditional fund raising auction, so please feel free to bring on item to donate to the auction.  It can be Bee related, or not!

Directions to the Wirt Apiary:  From I-77, take the Strasburg Exit (Exit 87).  At the end of the ramp, make a left turn (it doesn't matter whether you're coming from the north or south, the turn is the same from either ramp).  Go approximately 1/4 mile, and make a left turn onto 9th Street SW (the turn is just before you get to Hardee's).  Go about two blocks, and make another left turn onto Weber Avenue (if you get the the Stop sign at S. Bodmer, you've gone too far). Travel another block, and make yet another left turn onto 10th Street SW.  Our home sits on the corner of 10th Street SW, and Brandi Drive SW.  You can park anywhere on the street. 

Directions to Deis Hill Park:  From I-77, take Dover Exit 83.  Go east 0.4 miles and make the left turn (Y intersection) at the light onto West Slingluff Avenue.  Take West Slingluff to it's end, and turn left onto North Crater Avenue.  Once on North Crater Avenue, you'll go about 1/2 mile, and take an angled turn onto Deis Hill Road NW/North Crater Avenue.  The Park entrance will be on the left about 0.2 to 0.3 miles up the hill (GPS Coordinates: 40.545631, -81.491913). 

Our meeting dates for the rest of 2015, are as follows:

August 13, 2015
September 10, 2015
October 8, 2015
November 12, 2015 (Potluck Dinner, Officer Elections)

All regular meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month beginning at 7:00 p.m. at the Winfield United Methodist Church, 5247 State Route 516, Dover, Ohio. We hold a short business meeting and a discussion on beekeeping and often have guest speakers. We make sure to have snacks and fellowship too!
