In the final program of our Spring Lecture Series, Interlaken beekeeper Duane Waid will share “The History of Beekeeping in the Finger Lakes.” Mr. Waid will discuss the history of beekeeping, with emphasis on the early beekeepers of this area and their contributions to the craft in his presentation.

Duane and his wife Wanda founded Waid Apiaries as a family-owned and operated business in 1976. They produce varietal honeys from the wide range of flora which flourishes in the Finger Lakes area of New York State. The Waids have been active in the Ithaca Farmers Market for over 30 years as well as the Trumansburg Farmers Market, Watkins Glen Farmers Market and deliver regularly to area food markets, fruit stands and gift shops.

This lecture is supported in part by the Samuel B. Williams fund for programs in the Humanities.
