My name is John. My father and I have been keeping bees for 17 years now. It has been an awesome journey thus far. He started it as a hobby in 1993 and now we have over 100 hives. We do some pollination and sell some splits in the spring. I am fairly new to Beesource; I have visited many times before signing up for an account. Currently we are trying to expand our operation; we have a few propolis traps and a pollen trap. I am thinking of getting into some candle making and possibly lip balm to add as value added products to our local honey stand and to our local stores that carry and sell our honey.
