How Do I Get Started in Beekeeping?

The best way to get started is to contact a beekeeper in your area who is willing to "hold your hand" for a couple of years.  Beekeeping is something you can start by yourself, but it can be difficult if you run into a problem, and have no one to turn to for help. However you start, we highly recommend you start with at least two hives, so you have a means of comparison. You will be able to tell how the hives are doing, compared to each other. If you start with one, and know nothing about bees, you won't know if your hive is doing good, bad, or indifferent. Whatever you do- read, read, read! If we can be of any assistance, please feel free to email or call us.
