Krewe Klass: Beekeeping 101 – Fri Nov 18

In keeping with the Mystic Krewe’s celebration of every flavor of knowledge, our next “Krewe Klass(tm)” is of an interesting and esoteric topic: Beekeeping!bees2

Everybody knows about bees and the product of their labor: Honey, but did you know there’s much more to them?   Local businessman, K.J. Lodrigue, owner of KJUN.US, LLC will be bringing samples of his products and giving a powerpoint presentation of the ins and outs of beekeeping and all the really cool products he makes with honey and beeswax!

About, LLC:

bees1“We are local Louisiana beekeepers making and selling local honey and beeswax products. Our colonies have been treatment free from harsh mite treatments for over a decade. This means that our RAW & UNFILTERED honey and beeswax is as uncontaminated as we can make it!



In addition to selling honey and beeswax products (such as body lotions, lip balms, old fashion homemade soaps, and pure beeswax candles), we also sell nucs (or “small bee colonies”), queen bees, cypress top bar hives, and cypress long hives. We will also do pollination contracts, but we only service small farmers needing just a 8-20 hives per location.

We do line bee removals from homes, trees, and other structures. (We ARE licensed and insured beekeepers and live bee removers!)”

WHEN:   Friday, November 18th, doors open at 6pm, class is from 6:30pm-8pm.

The PinChurch will stay open for another hour after (till 9pm), but will close early due to an event the following day.
