Scottsville Supply Company, a small, locally-owned bee supply and gift store, is gearing up to celebrate its Grand Opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Saturday, November 21, 2015 at 10:00 AM. The ceremony will be held at the store, located at 531 Valley Street in historic Scottsville, and will be attended by Scottsville Town Council members and representatives from the Scottsville Chamber of Commerce.
As the only beekeeping supply store in the Charlottesville area, Scottsville Supply Company provides central Virginian beekeepers access to Mann Lake beekeeping supplies. In addition to their equipment product line, they have package bees available for the 2016 season, and will offer two beginning beekeeper classes in January 2016, in partnership with the Scottsville Center for Arts and Nature, for anyone interested in learning the basics of hive management. For both beekeepers and non-beekeepers alike, Scottsville Supply Company also provides an array of other products and gifts such as honey, candies, soaps, candles, flower seeds, Bees Wrap, and bee- and farm-related antiques.
“I am proud to welcome Scottsville Supply Company to the County,” said Scottsville District Supervisor, Jane Dittmar. “Supporting entrepreneurs with unique business models is another way for Albemarle to grow and diversify our economy and we welcome and congratulate you.”
Scottsville Supply Company’s mission is to ensure every backyard beekeeper in central Virginia has the access to superior products, the helpful knowledge to manage their hives, the support needed to navigate a year in their beeyard, and community connections to find a mentor, fellow beekeeper, or landowner to help support their interests.
