    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:

    Buckethat, I do live in Heron Lake and know the Mischke family. Don't see Tom very often but use to play some ball against him years ago. If you get down this way we will have to get together.

    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.
