    Default Clayton, North Carolina

    Hello all my name is Jeff and i am from Clayton NC. I have always been interested in beekeeping as my grandfather was a keeper. Now that he has passed i have received some of his equipment, and am going to give it a try. This will be my first year trying beekeeping and i am sure ill have lots of questions.

    Welcome from another Tar Heel! My 18 yr old son enjoys my bees and intends to have hives whenever I can get him to move away! (fat chance).

    Well i attended my first beekeeper meeting, and have decided to take the beginner class they offer in Raleigh march 16-17. Then i am going to try and find me a mentor. I hope i can find a mentor but i am not a social butterfly so we will see. To belewsboy i will read the link, and he will move out then youll wish he was at home.lol.. Thanks for all the replies and if anybody knows of somebody close to me willing to mentor it would greatly appreciated. Again thanks and everybody be blessed.
