Hi I'm a commercial beekeeper in south west Idaho. I have lurked around in this forum for some time but never signed up. I'm looking forward to pulling some honey here in the next week or two.

We mainly run on the edges of hay fields and around the snake river. Our food/pollen sources are rabbit brush, milk weed, hay, wild mustard, corn, wildflowers, and buckwheat. We use pollen patties and syrup as needed. I do love the fishing in southern Idaho. I mainly fish C.J. Strike and Anderson Ranch Res.
