Rhode Island Beekeeping | Beekeeper Confidential

Meet Master Beekeepers, Cynthia Holt and Scott Langlais from Rhode Island! I met Cynthia a few years ago on social media and have watched her beekeeping journey unfold and the launch of her beekeeping business, Little Rhody Beekeeping. In this interview Cindy and I are joined by her long time bee friend, Scott. Scott just got voted in as VP of the Rhode Island Beekeepers Association and together they manage the Rhode Island Beekeepers Association apiary with the help of Scott’s wife Emily (who makes a brief appearance in the episode).

One topic that especially sparked my interest was the Sentinel Apiary Program through the Bee Informed Partnership. I was so intrigued that I decided to sign up to participate in the program for 2019. I will be whining to Cindy and Scott about it later in the season, for sure!
