    Default Hello From Charlotte, NC

    Hey all!

    I'm totally new to bee keeping, but definitely looking forward to it. I'm super excited about getting my nucs and having 2 colonies.

    I have 2 8 Frame English Garden Hives from Brushy Mountain.

    As you can see from my username, I'm a MAJOR Apple fan . Any questions about Apple, PM me.

    I live in the Charlotte, North Carolina (not in the city area though) which is a great place to beekeep. See everyone around the forums!

    Hello. Hopefully all this unseasonably warm weather will give us a head start on spring in NORTH CAROLINA.

    What's your favorite apple? I like the Gala - sweet and crunchy.

    Welcome to the forums.

    I'm in Lincolnton. Beesource is great. Mecklenburg Co is supposed to have a very strong beekeeper's club.

    Thanks everyone!

    It's neat to have a forum with so many people so knowledgable about a diverse interest.

    Hey there! I am also a new beekeeper in the Charlotte area. I haven't gotten any bees yet though. I'm looking to get them ASAP. Anyone have some bees for sale?

    Welcome all! My advice is to go to your county beekeeping clubs.(as well as reading Beesource) NC is very strong in hobby/sideliner keepers & clubs. You can get bees and advice there. So much of beekeeping is local: both "in how to do it" and because bees adapt to a local area.
