Trumbull County Beekeepers Association, referred to as TCBA, is a non-profit unincorporated association formed under the laws of the State of Ohio, with the purpose to assist and educate beekeepers to maintain our individual rights as beekeepers, to encourage beekeeping as a hobby and as an industry, to promote natural beekeeping and methods, and to create a positive public image of beekeeping.
Meet The TCBA Team
TCBA President, Backyard Beekeeper of 7 years. Beekeeping mentor, I love learning new and interesting topics in beekeeping. Interests: Beekeeping, SCUBA Diving, hunting, fishing, engineering, and learning new things.
I have been keeping bees for 6 seasons and currently have 13 colonies. Our family business is Wicked Sweet Honeybees where we sell honey, candles and other products.
I was a Trustee with the Trumbull County Beekeepers Association for 3+ years. I have led the club's Beginning Beekeeping class for the past 3 years. I have mentored many new beekeepers and love sharing information. I am always willing to talk about beekeeping!
Withheld for privacy.
I have been beekeeping with my son Kyle for about 5 years, and we have around 40 hives. I was the Manager of Kent State University Grounds Department and am now retired. I was Trustee at Paris Township for 8 years. I am a Veteran of the United States Air Force reserves. I am Vice President of the Isaak Walton League, Martin L. Davey Chapter in Paris Township. My interests are bee keeping/classes gathering bee swarms and hunting with my Grandchildren.
I'm an engineer who raised five boys and now it's all about the bees---my girls. As a new"bee" to this fascinating hobby, it's amazing how, in just a year, I'm already rambling on and on to anyone who'll listen (or so my wife tells me). I've enjoyed building both horizontal and vertical hives. I look forward to sharing my knowledge as I learn.
Books, magazines, journals, and articles on beekeeping which are informational, thought-provoking, and heart warming.
