Florida’s beekeepers are recovering thanks to the support of Florida State Beekeepers Association, our FATA members, bee lovers and hurricane responders. Our Association stepped up to help the beekeepers because we understand how vital bees are to our food chain. And, after the destruction wrought by Hurricane Michael, the hives would have collapsed and Florida’s beekeeping industry would have been in serious jeopardy.
We thank state government officials, GreaterGood.org, Busy Bee, U.S. Sugar, Florida Crystals Corporation and many other generous donors for their monetary and physical donations and counsel.
We hope not to see another event like this hit Florida again!
