Hello everyone.
I will be new to bee keeping this year in Manitoba, Canada. I plan to start with 5-10 hives and hope to expand my operations as I become more familiar and comfortable with it. I recently visited the farm of Ian who posts regularly on this forum and was amazed by his operations and appreciative of his willingness to share his knowledge and experience with me as well as show me around his wintering operations. I hope to forge relationships with other bee keepers and apologize in advance for my inexperience and any questions that may arise from that inexperience.
