The Pulaski County Farm Bureau and Bemis Honey Bee Farm want to encourage three young
adults to begin keeping honey bees by giving them everything they need to start right.
The Young Farmer and Rancher Beekeeping Scholarship is open to all Arkansas resident
(not just those in Pulaski County) with an interest in beekeeping, who do not already
own honey bees.
The applicant should be actively engaged in their community and have an interest in
joining the Farm Bureau. Interested applicants simply need to submit an application
with a brief personal statement on why beekeeping is an interest, and include a letter
of recommendation from a non-family member. Applications are due by April 1, 2018.
Three applicants will be chosen, and the awards presented on April 28, 2018, at the
5th Annual Bee Day at Bemis Honey Bee Farm.
Winners will receive a free 1-year membership in the Pulaski County Farm Bureau, an
introductory training course at Bemis Honey Bee Farm, a 3-lb. package of honey bees,
and a complete beekeeping starter kit. The kit includes one complete hive, a beekeeping
jacket and veil, a smoker, hive tool and bee brush, and a book on beekeeping. The
total prize package is worth $550.
