A keeper? A keeper of what? This is the second time in one week in which I have heard what I assumed to be beekeepers refered to as "keepers". First by the new Director of Plant Industry in the Dept. of Ag of NY and now here.I would like to be a keeper on Guam island. You would be the only keeper for several thousand miles
I agree Mark, for the reasons you state. Good flows, nutritious pollens, Great place to raise quality queens. If fact, Vermont and New York used to be on the top 10 list for US queen production...many years ago.Northern VT and Northern NY. Right Mike? Good forage w/ distinct flows.
