    Default newbie from western MA

    Hey All,
    Like my name says I'm a wanna bee farmer from Wilbraham MA. I've been thinking about beekeeping for a few years but didn't want to take on too many new things at once(starting raising chickens for meat and eggs last year).I can only hit my wife with one major addition a year before she hits me back. I've been doing reading and taken a few workshops through nofa. I'm picking up 2 nucs in may to get the ball rolling. I'll be trying to glean as much as I can from everyones combined experience. So thanks in advance!!!

    Get your wife involved as well. That way it's a shared sacrifice! :-)

    Welcome aboard,

    Great bunch here, you'll learn a lot.

    My wife was originally afraid of bees when I started, now she is waiting on delivery of her two packages of bees for this year.
