Welcome to the Greatest Honey Bee Field Day event anywhere, and unlike most large events of this nature, it is totally and completely FREE to one and all. Our featured speakers for this phenomenal event are Randy Oliver from Golden West Bees & Queens and Ray Olivarez of Olivarez Honey Bees, Inc. There will also be 8 to 10 mini break-out sessions featuring a broad variety of beekeeping topics – something for everyone. And, of course, every beekeeper’s favorite subject – FOOD, provided by Spencer Twist. They will be providing pulled pork and sides for $10.00

In celebration of the Kentucky Derby’s 150 Anniversary, we will be holding our very own bee derby – The Honey Bee Races seen only at QRC. This year it’s a TriFecta race, “Winner Takes All.” There will be farm tours, live alpaca shearing demo, raffle for a variety of items including a complete colony, lots and lots of door prizes, bring your own lunch/grill picnic on the grounds. Livestock you can expect to see include: Fallow deer, muntjac deer, prevost squirrels, rheas, zebu cattle, lots of birds and, if possible, a boa constrictor or two collection. Come bring the family or a friend. This is not just a beekeeper’s event but something for everyone. Everyone is welcome and again it is FREE.
