So I spent the winter learning more about our craft. I exercised the Mountain Camp Method.......so Thank God for this Website!
I am now learning about the Minnesota Method of Beekeeping in Northern Climates. I purchased the DVD/2 pamphlets from the University of Minnesota. In it they advise securing Bee's from Minnesota, due to several reasons(winter hardiness/hygienic/etc).
As I will be having at least 8 splits occurring , and 7 new packages showing up, I am curious about Minnesota Queens.
So my question is.....what Apiaries in Minnesota is most suggested. The one I find Dr. Spivak seems to be associated with is Glenn Apiaries, but I am under the impression they are in California.
I have spent the last several years introducing several different hygienic strains in my yards(all except one hive has made it this far alive and waiting for Spring !!!!) , and I would love another strain this year. Any input/advice here on reputable Minnesota Breeders is most welcomed.
