    Default Central California

    My name is Stephen, and I am in the San Joaquin Valley of California, otherwise known as the Central Valley. For many years, I have observed the bountiful almonds, Orange trees, and other tree fruit in this valley, having hives placed with them during this season of the year and it fascinated me. So this year I decided I wanted in…

    I have been reading as much as I can find on bees and beekeeping, and have been tailing another beekeeper here in the area. I was going to start off with four hives, but my wife told me to start ten, so this is where I am at. I am continuing to tail this local beekeeper whenever time permits, and will have my first ten packages delivered a little later. I find this forum helpful and Thank You all for this.

    Hi, Steve.
    Every starting beekeeper would like a wife like yours! Keep the board informed on your
    progress. We need more beeks around here.

    Welcome to Beesource, Stephen. We have several really good beeks here from your neck of the woods, so find them and pick their brains.
    So many weeds.......so little time.
