Forsyth County Beekeepers Association
Because of the favorable response to the first two "Feed the Bees" distributions, we are having another.
In an effort to help honey bees, Ingredion Inc of Winston Salem has offered once again to provide Forsyth County Beekeepers Association bulk corn syrup for distribution to our members to feed their bees.
The stipulation with this offer is our association can't sell what we receive and no one receiving it from us can sell this corn syrup.
We have had a few members step forward to work out the logistics of filling the approximate 300 gallon totes of corn syrup. The totes will be filled and transported to American Bee Supply, 2686 Piney Grove Rd, Kernersville, NC 27284 for distribution to FCBA members who registered to pickup their allotment of corn syrup on Saturday, August 22, 2020, from 9am to 12noon.
Each registered member will be limited to the amount they registered for up to a max of 10 gallons for the first go-around. Based on past events, we believe we are going to have about 30 - 50 people who are interested in this offer. After we have distributed all registered amounts we will let everyone registered line up again and get seconds using the same formula or until we run out.
We expect to have a fourth distribution this year depending on how well things go.
Registration will close Thursday 8/20/2020.
Please remember you can't sell the syrup you receive from this program. It is each registered member's responsibility to bring containers that will not leak and can hold the liquid dispensed. Last but not least this is a benefit for our members only. If you have some one who is interested all they have to do is become a member and then register for the program.
