apiary position

Posted: January 30 2013

French Hill Apiaries, begun in 1974 and located in the northern Champlain Valley of Vermont and New York, is one of the largest and most successful beekeeping operations in New England.
Queen Catching Crew
We produce high quality liquid and comb honey that is sold throughout the region. My apiary is also noted for producing exceptional, locally adapted bees and queens, used by beekeepers and universities alike. I am a well known beekeeping educator, specializing in helping beekeepers set up and managing a sustainable apiary. If you would like to see what I'm up to in the world of honeybees, google my name.
I'm looking for some good, motivated employees to help me in all areas of my apiary. Basic beekeeping knowledge a must. A high level of common sense and work ethic are as important. We work every day with the bees, taking rain days off when shop work is caught up. Days are long. Bees sting. We do our best to lighten the load, but in beekeeping most of what we do is by hand. We do try to have fun. Life in Vermont is good.
Compensation is $12/hr for a 40-60 hour week. Employees are covered by Workers Compensation. I do have a no charge trailer suitable for living space. We start around 7:30 am, and work until the job is done for the day. Occasionally we move bees between apiaries that requires night work. The job starts mid-April, and finishes up about mid-October.I also take on part time employees at busy times of the year.
