    Default newbee from mn

    Hello all,

    This spring i'm going to start a new adventure...I've read a few books and done some research on the web, and ordered enough wooden ware

    to start up two medium frame hives! Now the hard part....waiting for spring to arrive.......I think it is going to be a long winter
    Guess it gives me time to do some more research on bees.....There sure is a lot to learn!

    Do you know about the short course at the U? It's a good introduction to keeping bees in MN, and a great opportunity to connect with other new beeks.

    A lot of good information in two days.

    Welcome to the fray.

    Welcome Tim! Did you order bees for spring yet? You could be last on a long list already.

    Tim, Here's a link to where a lot of Central Minnesota beekeepers get their package bees from. Jim's a great fella to work with. He'll let us know when it's time to order (usually late January or early February).

    Thanks Nowthen!
    I've contacted Jim via e-mail, its great he's only 10 miles from my home. I'll have to pay him a visit and check out his operation...I hope he doesn't mind having his ears chewed off with newbee questions
