on the road to bee keeping again..

Well a couple years ago I was going to try bee keeping but i chickened out.  Today I went to get a couple ice cream pales of honey and some wax and I was offered a part time job for next year.  They were willing to pay but I asked if they would be willing to trade bee keeping supplies, honey, wax ect.. and they are.  They are also down sizing so they will supplies me with a few colonies.  I am so excited, this is a chance of a life time :excited:

Re: on the road to bee keeping again..

Congratulations PC!! It is a wonderful job/ hobby. Malcolm is considering starting up again too. He doesn't want to work for someone else, after being laid off this year. He used to have about two hundred hives and misses his bees. He is an amazing bee keeper but I am a little worried about the initial investment though lol. Enjoy!!

Re: on the road to bee keeping again..

We just harvested out first honey last Saturday.  We got about 60 lbs of honey.

They are mostly DH's bees so he deserves all the credit, I'm not a fan of bees but they do seem pretty reasonable to work with so i think you will be just fine with the proper equipment and teaching PC.

Re: on the road to bee keeping again..

I looking into keeping bees about two years ago.  I know three people that keep bees and after reading up on them I wanted to give it a go, but my wife didn't approove, so no bees for me (for now anyways).
