    I was you this time last year... picked my first package up this past spring out near you from Brushy Mountain Bee Farm's new store near New Columbia, PA. Very happy with them and would recommend... have fun!

    Hello and Welcome!

    I'm sure you'll find this forum to be a good source of information about bees & beekeeping. Be sure to check out the "How to Start Beekeeping" subforum - it contains many useful suggestions for those just starting out.

    Between now and next spring, spend all the time you can reading and learning. Check your local library for books and videos. There are many great beekeeping sites on the web, here are two I frequently recommend:
    http://www.bushfarms.com/bees.htm
    http://www.honeybeesonline.com/lessons.html

    I also recommend getting involved with a local beekeeping club. Clubs often offer beginning beekeeping classes and are great places to find mentors and get connected to nearby beekeepers. Plus, they can recommend and direct you to local suppliers of bees & equipment, as well as help guide you in what beekeeping practices work best in your area. Looks like there are a few clubs in your part of the State:

    Welcome to the site!

    I would second the comment on Brushy Mountain. Great company, although I deal with their "old" NC store.
