Beekeepers from the Blount County Beekeepers Association got to show off some of their equipment, honey and bees to the folks at the Maryville Farmers Market.

The beekeepers included Harlen Breeden, Bill Manuel, Charlie Parton, Jose Ashbrook, Christy Ridley and Heather Lowery, one of John Skinner’s graduate students who brought a four-story observation hive.

Thanks very much to Charlie Parton for these pictures.
