    Default Hello from North Central Florida

    Hey all! SUPER glad to find this site! I currently live in Tampa, but will be moving 3 hours north between Perry and Live Oak in 2 months. My bees are up at the land already and I am hoping that someone will be willing to take me under their wing so to speak. This is a sudden move and it's my first year beekeeping. HELP...=)))))) And thank you in advance. Even going an hour north to Jacksonville would be better than learning how to beekeep on my own.

    Welcome to the site! Find and join the local bee association and I bet you will find a lot of hands on help. I did here in Upstate SC. Good luck!

    Thanks flbee! I'm about 1.15 hours away, do you happen to know of anything closer- south? I'm going to try my hardest to get up there because I do need mentorship! Thanks again, will definitely get in contact when we move up to the land in July!

    Welcome,
    You can stop by and go through some hives with me if you'd like on your way up.

    That's great AB! I did register with the Apiary, can't remember her name. We don't have an address for our land yet, just one more thing to do...=)

    Someone also told me about a new group meeting in Perry, which is only 20 minutes away- PERFECT!!

    Thanks everyone!!!

    Vervclan, the Gilchrest County club is part of a larger grouping of affiliated clubs. Depending on exactly where your soon to be residence is, and which meeting may be better suited for you...

    Home of the North Central Florida Beekeepers Association

    Have also met one or two of the Dixie members and seemed very nice up at Dadant in Alachua. Careful though, Dadant being so close, you might get even more addicted!!
