    Default Howdy from the Arkansas Ozarks!

    Howdy! My name is Roland and I have been interested in bee keeping for quite some time. We are located in north/central Arkansas. My grandfather and great grandfather both kept bees here in the Ozarks going back to the late 1800s. I recently retired after many years of traveling the country to make my living and would like to get started keeping bees just as my forefathers did, now that I can devote the time necessary to care for the bees. We also keep milk goats and from them we get milk, cheese, yogurt and butter. I look forward to learning from other local bee keepers as well as information from sites such as this one.

    Hello Roland,

    Moved to my present location about 4 years ago from North Little Rock. I used to cover pretty much the northern half of the state with job before retiring to Florida. You in like Greers Ferry or Heber? Perhaps Clinton? (now I see Yellville: edit) Anyhoo, have fun with the new hobby, new myself, and wish me luck rooting the Hawgs here in Gator country. WTF, Petrino

    Thank you all for the friendly reception! I gotta say that this site is packed full of great information! I started reading about beekeeping about a year ago and until just a few weeks ago I thought I knew what I needed to do to get started. Things have changed! After spending a day on this site and following many links provided here, I've come to realize I have a lot more studying to do and also see that it won't be as expensive to get started as I initially thought. I had no idea there were so many bee keepers out there!
    Peace.
    Roland

    Welcome to the Site from central Ar, I am a new beek my self done lots of reading before I got my bees this year, but there is nothing like experance it for real. Find a local beekeeper and ask if he will let you help.

    Good Luck.
