Honeybee Discovery Center

The Honeybee Discovery Center will be located on the Patrick Ranch in Durham, California, 90 miles northeast of Sacramento. The Museum will be the first of its kind in the United States.

Your contribution will help inform children and adults about one of the most important insects to our natural environment and agricultural world. A greater understanding of bees would be of great ecological, economic and educational interest.

Vintage Iron

Vintage Iron was formed in 1997 by a handful of farmers, local businessmen, antique farm tractor and equipment collectors. In 2001 Vintage Iron joined the national organization “Early Day Gas Engine and Tractor Association” (EDGE & TA), providing a network of other restoration organizations across the entire United States. Vintage Iron calls Chico, California home as do most of its members, however it has members from all over Northern California.

Vintage Iron is involved in numerous parades and events in the North State throughout the year. It’s biggest event is the Threshing Bee held at the Patrick Ranch every June. Vintage Iron conducted the first Threshing Bee (wheat harvest) in 2003 and has been putting on the wheat harvest ever since.
