New Supplier! Forest Hill Woodworking

I had the opportunity to talk with the folks from Forest Hill Woodworking at the 2013 EAS meeting in West Chester, PA.   They run a small, family owned beekeeping supply store in Paradise, PA, which is just outside of Lancaster.  I visited their store yesterday.  They have a great supply of essential equipment, and are open on Saturdays!

Here’s a copy of their latest catalog, in PDF Format:
