    Default New Member and Hello to all you beekeepers.

    I have been a beekeeper for 10 years, after retiring from a manufacturing environment of Textile Finishing Equipment.
    I have a farm in South Carolina and an apiary of approximately 40 hives. I do some teaching of beekeeping and currently have a Journeyman level of Master Beekeeping. I am working on a Masters level in SC and a Masters in the EAS. Glad to be here and looking forward to all the forums.
    Have a Great Day

    Welcome to the site Buddy! I am a newbie in northern Pickens County. I'm an architect and have been involved in numerous textile facilities since the early 80s. Not so many now. :-( I would love to see your apiary sometimes. I am presently clearing trees to the south of my apiary site (and garden) to increase the amount of sunshine I get. I am north of (behind Aunt Sue's) Hwy. 11. I have a lot of bear proofing to do too. Any advice/help will be greatly appreciated.

    Hello Hank,
    I am pleased to be on site. thank You. I was in textiles from 1962 to 1980, then began my own manufacturing firm from 1980 to 2001 when I retired. I am graduate of Clemson, BSIM.

    I have 68 acres near Furman where I enjoy clearing land with my Kobelco Track hoe. I have a garden and building a greenhouse at present. I lecture at Furman Univ. (BeeKeeping) and at my Apiary on Rutledge Lake Road. You are welcome to visit my apiary any time. Glad to help you any way I can.
    If you build a bear fence, put strands about 6 inches apart, up to 5 feet. If you have electrical power, use a large battery (I do not have power at the apiary so I have to use solar energy).

    Will answer any questions you have and may pick your brain some day in building a cabin on the site.. I use to have a contractors license but have forgotten most of what I knew at the time.

    Hello sfisher,
    I am vacationing in Charleston at the moment. We have had lots of rain in Greenville this week.
    Can you tell me where you are located and your major concerned about your location?
