Ross Conrad

Ross Conrad learnt his trade from the late Charles Mraz, the founder of Champlain Valley Apiaries in Vermont and a world-renowned beekeeper. Conrad is a regular contributor to Bee Culture--The Magazine of American Beekeeping and is the former president of the Vermont Beekeepers Association. For many years, he has given beekeeping presentations and taught organic beekeeping workshops and classes all across North America. Dancing Bee Gardens, his tiny beekeeping business, sells honey and candles to friends, neighbors, and local retailers, as well as providing bees for Vermont apple pollination in the spring.
