This is my third year of keeping bees. My second year I harvested 96 lbs. off of one strong hive that I had split before the flow. I harvested 2 times. Once in the middle of June and the other at the end of July. The only problem I have is that my bees are 125 miles away. I do have a cutout of bees in the back yard here in Chattanooga. A friend and myself started doing cutouts late in the season last year. I really enjoy the bees and plan on keeping this hobby. I am a member of the Tennessee Valley Beekeepers Assoc. I have an observation hive that I used in my youngest girls school last year. I had a ball with the talk I gave to the 60 second graders. I still have a lot to learn and have been fortunate with what I have accomplished so far. I started with one hive and now have three. I highly recommend starting with two hives if you are thinking about getting into bees. You have many more options with two.

My other 3 hives are in Jamestown, TN. About 125 miles North. Fentress County TN. I was at the meeting last night and am also a member of TVBA.
