D&J Apiary Online Store is now Open!
It's been several months in the making, and a much larger task than I had originally anticipated, but I'm proud to announce that the Online Store is now active.
Some of you have already found the online store, and a couple have already placed orders over the last month. I went live with the store about a month ago, but didn't announce it in order to do some testing and to work out any bugs. Although there may still be one or two gremlins lurking in the background, I'm confident in the fact that we can now announce that it is open for business. The online store currently accepts the same Credit Cards that we do here in the showroom, and I am working on establishing an account for those of you who prefer to pay with PayPal. We currently offer two shipping options, United States Postal Service (USPS) and United Parcel Service (UPS) with USPS being the cheapest of the two. USPS packages ship Priority Mail and in most cases should arrive within 2-3 Business days. UPS packages will ship UPS Ground and range from 3-5 Business days for delivery. If you haven't already, click on the Online Store tab and check us out. If you have any issues, or encounter any problems feel free to contact us at the office, and we'll do our best to correct the problem to everyone's satisfaction.
Antibiotics Regulations for 2017
Everyone is asking, and very few are answering, how exactly these new regulations will affect the Beekeeping community. There is a lot of speculation about how bees and beekeepers will be affected, and if you look at the FDA website it is very vague and leaves quite a bit open to interpretation.
Here's what we know so far
We are filling paperwork with the FDA to be registered as a distributor, and therefore will still be able to order and sell Terra pro. You will however have to provide us with either a prescription (Rx), or a Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) in order to make a purchase. How you receive that Rx or Directive is where things get a little blurry. Below is a link to an article published in the September 26th 2016 Bee Culture Magazine that tries to shed a little clarity on the subject. I'm still researching this further and will post info as it becomes available.
