    Default Hello from Killington,VT

    I'm new to beekeeping. One hive set up with an extra 5 gifted complete hives set to go as expansion seems practical (when my skills increase). Started with a 5 frame nuc - hive seems happy and doing well. Gentle and productive- expanding brood, gathering pollen and nectar; consuming sugar mix less and less - no problems noted. I look forward to learning more. Paul

    Welcome You have a beekeeper from Middlebury that has alot of good information on honeybees. His name is Kirk Webster and if you can get bees from him you would be ahead of the ballgame.

    Thanks for the welcome and the information; new contacts have been very friendly and helpful so far. I understand that one of the largest apiaries in Vermont is based in Middlebury, Charles Mraz and Champlain Valley Ariaries has been mentioned a few times in discussions. I've already met a few enthusiastic beekeepers who have been very helpful.
