My husband and I run a smallish apiary outside of Dripping Springs, Texas. DS is known as the Gateway to the Texas Hill Country (about 26 miles west of Austin); we enjoy living here. A couple of weeks ago we finished having a honey house built and are now outfitting it: installing a/c, lighting, sink, water heater, work tables, shelves, etc.! We hope to have enough of our OHHO Wildflower Honey to sell to local folks who bought some last year and have been waiting for us to have more to sell them.
One thing I'm sure of: there are about as many opinions about beekeeping as there are beekeepers.
