    Default Aspiring AZ Beekeeper

    Hey all,

    I just recently purchased my dream home in Sierra Vista, AZ on an acre of land. I'm an avid gardner and in the intrest of higher yeilds I started learning about honeybees. Holy smokes I'm hooked! I've read pretty much anything I can get my hands on and I'm going to buy the hives this year. Not sure if it's too late to start a hive though so for now I'm holding off on getting bees (unles I can get 'em cheap and local!) I'm new to the subject so any pointers would be appreciated! My main mission these days is trying to scout out a beekeeping mentor. If you're willing to train me and you're local, I'm willing to work! I'm eager to learn and willing to work long hours if need be just for a couple nuggets of wisdom and some experience. Thanks in advance for all you veteran beekepers who are going to point me in the right direcition!

    I don't keep up with who's who in beekeeping, but I believe Roy Wilson of Southwest Bee Supply could probably help you get in touch with some beekeepers that are local to you.

    You should stop by and visit the ranch soon...we are just up the road from you (relatively speaking).
