    Default learning Materials

    I don't know If I'm on right place but I just want to ask how you can produce honey. If you can offer me some learning materials it would be great since I'm new.

    The ABC and XYZ of Bee Culture

    Got mine for $20 used at a hole in the wall bookstore. I have the 1990 edition as pictured. You might also find a local bee group/club to join in your area.

    Learning to be a beekeeper is like learning to play Poker .... You learn quicker with money in the game!

    I don't have a lot of experience but I would suggest reading everything and remember it's a very local thing!

    But don't bet the farm because beginners luck is not particularly reliable.

    Complete Idiot's Guide to Beekeeping by Dean Stiglitz and The Practical Beekeeper by Michael Bush.

    Both these guys are to be found around here from time to time.

    First, get some honey bees. I don't produce honey, the bees do. I simply harvest it.
