Plea for Bees – An Incredible Talk By Apiarist Dennis van Engelsdorp

And he describes beekeepers to a tee.

“…beekeepers are among the most fascinating people you’ll ever meet. If this was a group of beekeepers, you would have everyone from the card-carrying NRA member who’s… live free or die, to … the self-expressed quirky San Francisco backyard pig farmer.  And you get all of these people in the same room, and they’re all engaged and they’re getting along, and they’re all there because of the passion for bees.”  – Dennis van Engelsdorp, Acting State Apiarist for Pennsylvania’s Department of Agriculture.
