I just bought a farm and am interested in beekeeping. I'm a total beginner but hope to learn a bunch from this forum and after a while contribute the one or other useful post:)

Hello and Welcome!

I'm sure you'll find this forum to be a good source of information on bees and beekeeping. Be sure to check out the "How to Start Beekeeping" subforum - it contains many useful suggestions covering the basics.

Also check your local library for books and videos on beekeeping. And, get involved with a local bee club. Clubs are great for finding mentors and getting connected with nearby beekeepers. There are several good clubs in Kentucky:

What are you doing THIS Saturday? The Kentucky State Beekeepers are having a field day over at Kelley Bees in Clarkson. It would be a great opportunity to jump right in:

Thanks for the warm welcome and links. I had indeed seen the Field Day announcement and was eager to go, but we had already sent our RSVP for a wedding. Meanwhile I swung by Barnes & Noble and got 2 different books on beekeeping...
Thanks again.
