Next TU Talk to focus on beekeeping

Tony Hogg began beekeeping in 2002 as a way of helping his daughter overcome her fear of insects. Along the way his hobby grew from two hives to more than 200, and now he’s the owner of Full Moon Apiary in Monticello, Florida.

At 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 3, Hogg will share his story and his work as part of Thomas University’s TU Talk series. Presented by the TU Library, the talk will be held in the Flowers Floods Executive Classroom inside Smith-Bonvillian Hall on TU’s Forbes Campus.

Hogg is now active in the Florida State Beekeepers Association. He helped get honey added to the Florida Cottage Food Law and also helped in steering several important pieces of legislation to protect beekeepers and apiary operations, and to secure funding to construct a honey bee research facility at the University of Florida. Hogg recently obtained a specialty license to fund honey bee research.

His business, Full Moon Apiary, has expanded from honey production to include queen production and beekeeping equipment sales. Hogg enjoys promoting beekeeping as a hobby and teaches classes at his store in Monticello.
