In the Community: Federation of Irish Beekeepers Associations

Boyne Valley Honey has recently launched a number of initiatives to encourage an uptake in beekeeping in Ireland.

Working with the Federation of Irish Beekeepers’ Associations and in conjunction with the Derek Mooney Show, Boyne Valley Honey ran a search for 3 apprentice beekeepers. Hundreds of potential beekeepers applied and following on-air interviews 3 were chosen. Over the course of the summer months, Philip McCabe of FIBKA gave each of the apprentice beekeepers an introduction to beekeeping.
