Participants will see examples of a hive, hive parts, and beekeepers tools.
The Farm Executive Workshop will enhance agricultural executives capacity to address issues of management process implementation and follow through, address problems and opportunities as they arise, and allow members to investigate thoroughly how to effect change. The focus of this intensive effort is not farm production. The focus is business management, growth and long-term viability.
