Sturgeon Bay approves new beekeeping permit

The Door County Bee Keepers Club is buzzing with activity, rising to over 80 members this year. The group helped the City of Sturgeon Bay draft an ordinance allowing residents to keep hives on their property in 2017. Member Mark Lentz from Brussels says the application process is similar to that required for keeping chickens in your yard. The most important component is educating neighbors, particularly those who are concerned about an allergic reaction to a sting.


Another permit is being worked on currently. It would be the fourth issued to a Sturgeon Bay resident. The Door County Beekeepers Club meets in the evening on the third Tuesday of the month at Crossroads at Big Creek.
