    Default New from Kansas City

    Hi,

    I am from Kansas City and researching beekeeping. The only local resource I have found is Anthonys Beehive. There does not seem to be any local stores. I have found a few online sites, but this one seems to have the most information without selling something.

    Welcome to Beesouce!

    Here's another KC area retailer with bee supplies:

    And a local beekeeping club:

    I suggest you contact them soon to find out what other resources they know of in the KC area.

    Cecil and Joli at Heartland Honey have most everything you would want.

    Two great clubs in our area:

    Northeast Kansas Beekeepers Association meets the 1st Monday Night of every month generally in Olathe, KS www.nekba.org

    Midwestern Beekeepers Association meets generally the 3rd Thursday evening every month in Independence, MO www.midwesternbeekeepers.org

    Come on out we're friendly. Beginner Bee Classes are held in early March by the bee clubs. Also, a couple of the area Junior Colleges offer beekeeping lessons.

    Tony at Anthony's Beehive out of Lawrence does do a good job.

    Welcome! I'm north of the river in KC and agree with calling Ed and Heartland Honey. After a couple years I started ordering everything online other than bees.

    Thanks to everyone for the suggestions. I will check them out after the new year. Since her Christmas gift is a surprise, I can't share too much info with my wife yet and ruin her surprise.
