BCBA members show off bees during Blount Farm Tour

More than 850 Blount County students and teachers saw first-hand what beekeeping is like during the Blount Farm Tour earlier this month.

That exposure to bees came through the efforts of Blount County Beekeepers Association members Harlen Breeden, Pat Breeden, Darlene Parton and Charlie Parton. They were helped by UT grad student Heather Lowry, who is an assistant to Dr. John Skinner.

Below are pictures, courtesy of Harlen:
