    Default New Member Hello from North Texas.

    Will be attending the Collin County Association meeting tonight, good to see many members frequent this board. Wife is equally interested in bees. We recently purchased some property between Bonham and Trenton, hope to relocate/retire there in next few years. I am a native of the Honey Grove area. Definitely want to add bees to our hobby farm/retirement farm venues.

    Looking forward to meeting area beekeepers and becoming active in local association.

    Yes Sir, close to Boid D' Arc creek, just south of Randolph. First wife's family, over 25 years ago, were commercial beekeepers and made their crop in South Dakota each year. They wintered the hives in East Texas and moved them up in late spring. I spent some time, usually in the spring, doing splits and getting them ready for the move. They ran over 2000 hives and made a very good living with it back then. Went past Saturday to MR Bradfields north of BOnham and bought some comb and got a tour of his honey house, wifes first time to see anything like that.

    Looking forward to the local association meeting.
