Not to boast or anything but the bees in my apiaries are still bringing in pollen and raising much brood. Even after Sandy passed through. many beekeepers here are now patiently waiting for the logwood blossoms in January to February. I have decided to make a brave step and I am building enough boxes so i can expand to about 300 hives for next year. the big plan is to move from there then to 500. I am in the process of getting a small cell foundation mill and i will soon start building my own frames. I want to have control from production to final value added products.I am putting all my resources in these bees and wish me luck while I take this journey.
