I live just south of Ithaca, NY. I have on a small scale been keeping bee's for the last couple years. I am now ramping up to tend on a much larger scale. I have a lot to learn but a new beekeeping friend I met last year says that whatever I am doing keep doing it as I have one of the top 2 strongest hives he has ever seen. I really am immersing myself in the study. In three weeks I complete my Masters Degree in Business and will denote ever more time to this awesome science. I look forward to reading your posts and wish you all a very warm and productive honey flowing year!
