    Default Hi from Indiana

    Hi, I am Randy from west central Indiana . I am near Turkey Run State Park . I have 26 hives and hope to run a side liner operation with in the next few years . I have read some great things on this web site and am glad to be able to go somewhere to ask questions and get opinions on bee keeping .One thing I have learned is ask 6 beekeepers a question and you will probably get 7 different answers that just keeps it interesting to me.
    I love hunting,fishing,boating, grandkids,bees, and God . I run a amish taxi hauling service for a living until I get this bee operation going full swing . Hello to all and I hope all your hives are full of bees and honey this year.

    Welcome to Beesource!

    > I run a amish taxi hauling service

    OK, I can't resist asking.
    You haul Amish taxis? Are those horses?

    Or, if you run a taxi service and have some Amish customers, how is that different from a "normal" taxi?

    I believe he is talking about providing driving services to the Amish. Some can't own or operate a car but can ride into one. I've seen them used to get to and from manufacturing jobs. Anyway, welcome BUZZZZ!

    Hello and Welcome!

    Are you involved with the Sugar Creek Beekeeping club? Some great beekeepers in that club -good place to get connected to nearby beeks:

    Another good place to make connections is the State Association. We'll be having our summer meeting at the Purdue bee yards on June 22nd. That's always a fun meeting with lots of hands-on activities.
