    Default Hello From East Central Minnesota

    Hello All
    I am going to be a new beek come 2014. I have decided that all of 2013 will be devoted to learning what I can about bees and beekeeping. I have run into one beekeeper that sold me a few Langs and I think I may also build a TBH.

    Welcome, Elderbombadil!

    We have yards scattered around the Princeton area and they do well. Be sure to include a bear fence in your plans. We had no idea how many bear hung out around there until we set up our bee yards. We found out the hard way:

    I think it would be much more interesting for you if you started now with just one hive. Be sure no bees can get to you and use a little smoke. I am most confident that you will do just fine. Work slow and easy and on nice warm days.
