My dad, a master beekeeper, is just beginning his blog on the Sugar network. is a repository of his knowledge and a daily (or bi weekly) peek at the life of Hugh Campbell, a seventy year old beekeeper that's getting his hives ready for the 2009 summer crop. He has about 300 hives, but his oldest son Peter has about 1200 hives and together their apiary is one of the largest in Southern Ontario, Canada.

So have a look, ask questions, but please be kind to him - this beekeeper just loves to share his knowledge and would appreciate any feedback. Leave comments on his blog, or better yet, private message him directly.
