I'm not only a brand new beekeeper (first 2 nucs coming in May)...but we are brand new to life in the country and in Oklahoma! I'm 54 yrs old and my husband and I have been married for 31 years and have 5 kids. We had all 5 kids in a 7 year time frame, so they are close in age with the youngest being 18. Besides starting beekeeping, we have 3 weddings this year! We spent 23 yrs in Las Vegas, NV, 8 yrs in Gilbert, AZ and moved to OK almost 2 yrs ago. We just completed construction on our farm house on a 160 acre ranch and we are here to stay! I've been a little obsessed with the idea of beekeeping and have read many books on the topic. My hubby and I just completed a Beginner Beekeeping course in the area. Excited to get started!
