Hi from McMinnville, Oregon. I'm just starting, my brother gave me several uninhabitated hives and most ofthe equipment I'll need. 2 years ago I cut
down a tree on a very cold Feb. day and the hive that I didn't know was
inside didn't survive. I'd like to do my part to make up for their loss. We have
vineyards and farms around us, and I know their presence is needed.
