Coal Country Beeworks
Bees once thrived in the Appalachians due to native species such as tulip poplars, black locusts, sourwoods and wildflowers.
Sadly, domestic and feral bee colonies were devastated by tracheal and varroa mites in the 1980s. The region has yet to recover its bee populations.
The Coal Country Beeworks is committed to re-establishing bees and beekeeping in the region.
