    Default Hello from Michigan

    HI all, thought I would introduced myself. I'm Jeff, I live in Michigan. Just getting back into beekeeping after a long hiatus. Packages have been ordered and I have been building hives to be ready for when they arrive. I live on a 385 acre farm, so there's lots of room to grow from the two hives I'll be starting out with.

    Not so. I only have .6 of an acre and have 5 hives on it. For my other hives it's nice to have friends with property that don't mind getting free honey.

    I read your post and if you are interested in expansion. My friend lives in philadelphia but he keeps bees at a CSA (community supported agriculture.) Those type of places and community gardens often don't use pesticides and welcome bees especially if you throw in a little honey in
