Actually they don't let you determine a shipping cost when you place your order online like many vendors. You have to call them or submit the order and they call you.
They will not ship or bill...
I ordered from Humble Abodes and they called me to give me a shipping quote. It was not cheap but significantly lower if delivered by freight and not UPS or FedEx .
Last year was my first year. I started with a nuc and a package. I dumped a package into a foundationless Lang, hung the queen and checked to make sure she was released 2 days later, and then that...
Keep in mind someone less informed on Beekeeping may have advised him on this arrangement. Keep the amount of honey you want, don't buy it back you earned it. If he is willing to buy your honey to...
Made from apples. I hope they were hand pollinated and no bee labor was used.
I thought I had read that the workers in a lw colony will kill the queen whether introduced or from a combine.
In one of his suggestions he uses...
I have only had bees since May, but I have standard deep langs that I went with no foundation or wire. In general I am pretty happy with them and would do it again but i did have issues. You...
:). That's a keeper. I just copied that to my 'journal'. Thanks AR BKR
Full bloom apiary is in CT.
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...

I thought I would revive this thread as there are some funny stories and good advice in here.
At least for brood production that seems like a benefit for honey production, as a larger population would potentially mean more foragers.
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.
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.
I guess I am pretty naive. I thought people did come here to learn how to keep bees, regardless of their experience.
100lbs per hive! I say this with no bitterness but I believe you have just doomed me to failure. I will continue to hope or perhaps compare to others nearby.
Listening to Pancho and lefty right now. Thanks for the reminder:)
