Hi everyone,

i live in Northeast Pennsylvania.

I am just starting out and I hope to start my first hive next Spring.
I the mean time, like all beginners, I am looking for any guidance, resources and anyone who who could give some hands on experience.

Can't wait!

I was you this time last year... picked my first package up this past spring out near you from Brushy Mountain Bee Farm's new store near New Columbia, PA. Very happy with them and would recommend... have fun!

Hello and Welcome!

I'm sure you'll find this forum to be a good source of information about bees & beekeeping. Be sure to check out the "How to Start Beekeeping" subforum - it contains many useful suggestions for those just starting out.

Between now and next spring, spend all the time you can reading and learning. Check your local library for books and videos. There are many great beekeeping sites on the web, here are two I frequently recommend:

http://www.honeybeesonline.com/lessons.html

I also recommend getting involved with a local beekeeping club. Clubs often offer beginning beekeeping classes and are great places to find mentors and get connected to nearby beekeepers. Plus, they can recommend and direct you to local suppliers of bees & equipment, as well as help guide you in what beekeeping practices work best in your area. Looks like there are a few clubs in your part of the State:
