I'm a pre-hive-owning beginner. I plan to get two hives in the spring, so I'm in the phase of absorbing all the knowledge I can. I live in a rural area in Niagara County, in western New York state. I'm not looking to harvest much honey - it will just be an interesting hobby for me, and I hope to help increase the general bee population. Looking forward to poking around in the forums and finding out what's what!
My other main interest these days is chickens. We have 8, and they're the coolest chickens ever.
