How did I get started?
I started just helping my friends collect honey for a few years. Then in the fall of 2015 they asked if I wanted to take them over I figured yeah seems easy. Well the first winter I lost 12 of 13 hives ouch. So then I realized, I better get a handle on this. So I read and watched you tube videos as much as possible. I ended up buying 7 new packages, plus I split my surviving hive 4 times. Making a total of 12 hives. With the drastic changes I made I was able to get 9 hives through the winter. Furthermore, five years later I run somewhere around 40-50 hives and I am able to sell a few nucs from my splits every spring to help with equipment cost. The thing that drives me the most is the challenge of keeping the bee's healthy and alive. I also enjoy helping new beekeepers out with advice and tips when they run into issues.
Spring of 2016 the start of the learning curve.
