    Re: Queen breeding vs queen rearing

    Simply that I had already reserved some packages from Wolf Creek Apiaries. I wish I had heard of him last year when I was caught up in the Northern Queen/survivor stock buzz. That was my first...

    Re: chickens

    I have a dozen free ranging chickens who patroled my hive daily, their coop is about 15 feet away. They seemed to mingle peaceably. I am new but that was my experience.

    Re: CSA's Said Ok. Now What?

    I don't have any advice as far as your written agreement, but I would find out if the farm is leased or owned so you are dealing with the correct person. I keep bees at a CSA type farm as well, but...

    OK the forum not BS.
  16. Re: Marin Bee Survey: Hobby keepers - a net population sink

    Agreed Ace, that is what I see.
  22. Re: Marin Bee Survey: Hobby keepers - a net population sink

    Thanks, OT, I have seen some pretty unfriendly past threads. I try to avoid them as I think we are all much more than what is seen in our posts.
  23. Re: Marin Bee Survey: Hobby keepers - a net population sink

    Who are all these newbies promoting TF? Clearly, MB is not a newbie. I know there are other TF beekeepers out there, but it seems to me they are pretty reserved, and not because of universal...
  24. Re: Randy Oliver from Scientific Beekeeping
