2014 Welcome Back Tour!
On August 21st at noon, we took a tour of the OSU Apiary. Mike Burgett showed us several different styles of bee homes. Carolyn Breece told us about the different types of research that is currently being conducted by OSU and demonstrated how they extract honey from the bee hives. We also got to sample several different flavors of honey. Yum
