    Default Hi from WNC Mountains - Asheville NC area!

    Hello all!

    I am so happy to have found this resource and I very much appreciate the members vast knowledge and patience in the threads and posts I have read so far. Thank you for providing this forum and especially thank you to all of the experienced beekeepers here that are offering their valuable advice and mentoring!

    I have been learning the basics and working my two hive apiary for two years now with the hope of expanding my hobby into a retirement avocation within the next few years. I would like to learn how to operate my apiary using organic techniques and natural management methods. Currently keeping Carniolan line but looking to introduce Russian line into my beeyard but not decided if this should be a hybrid or pure Russian?

    Thanks. I work in Greeneville, so I am in your area often. Do you know a local source for Russian queens and Nucs?

    FYI, do not give any kind of advance deposit to anyone selling bees/queens from the Parrottsville TN area.

    I have left multiple e-mails and messages with Revis but have not received any response at all. I am getting concerned that the season is almost on us and I might not get in line soon enough. Good to know about Parrottsville, TN thanks so much - don't kneed details but certainly appreciate the heads up!

    I was able to connect with Arnold and have two Nucs reserved for this spring! Thanks so much!

    Welcome to BeeSource and an exciting, if addicting hobby! Good luck with your bees this year.
