    Default Hello from Vashon Island (near Seattle)

    Hi everyone,

    Just discovered this forum the other day. Great source of information and experience!

    I am up in the Pacific Northwest where the weather is dismal for keeping bees but I'm working at it.

    So far I have only Top Bar Hives (horizontal and Warre's). I am hoping to catch a swarm and populate a new Perone hive I am building this spring...... My first hive was a Warre I purchased from Bee Thinking in Portland but since then I have built all my hives (I have a great wood shop!).

    I lean towards the more natural, treatment free methods of beekeeping but I believe there is much to learn every quarter.

    I have a small hobby farm where I raise chickens for eggs and meat and keep a fair sized garden. I do have a day job but I am a believer in a quasi-sustainable lifestyle.

    I am Looking forward to the benefit of all of your knowledge and experience!

    Thanks,
    annie m
