    Default Tentatively Future 2017 beekeeper

    I am from central Iowa (Poweshiek County) and am seriously considering starting with bees next spring. Anything can happen between now and then. For now I am really excited and reading everything I can find and watching every YouTube video about beekeeping. I wish I already had them as our family has always loved honey and we go through quite a bit.

    Welcome to the forum from Madison County Iowa! Once you get started with beekeeping you will love it! They are very neat and interesting! We have two of our hives right outside our living room window, and I find myself stopping whatever I'm doing several times a day and spending quite a bit of time just watching what they are doing.

    Welcome!

    I highly recommend you take the leap. This is my first year and it has been very exciting not only for myself but my family and friends as well. One suggestion - Join a beekeepers association! You will be hard pressed to find a better source of advice and entertainment. Most folks are very passionate and friendly. They will give you invaluable local information that is very difficult to get from books or other sources. Good Luck!
