The Best Website for New Beekeepers
Beekeeping is a family tradition for me. My grandfather kept honeybees when I was young and it was one of the many passions he passed on to me. My wife got me my first hive for my first fathers day and I have been in love ever since. My son comes out to the apiary with me and loves the bees. "Daddy, can we see the mommy bee?", he will ask me. He pulls up his little chair and watches as I work the bees. He and I both walk out and check activity at the hive entrance fascinated with childlike curiosity at the wonder of the honeybees. I ordered a new queen and requeened a hive recently and had the bees shipped to my work address so that I could pick the bees up during business hours. Everyone at the office was so fascinated by the bees and often take time to ask questions and learn about the bees.
