Hi all My name is Brad I will be new to bee keeping.

In 2009 I started making maple syrup I built a sugarhouse bought an evaporator and I currently have 300 taps and am working to improve before I increase my taps. www.willowcreeksugarhouse.com

In 2010 I Build a chicken coupe and got a dozen chickens to start with and I am just starting to get eggs. I will add in more next spring and hopefully some meat chickens. And I also expanded my garden.

In 2011 I am planning for Bees. I am currently reading a few books and someone from mapletrader.com said come here.

In 2012 maybe some pigs we'll see!!!!

I plan on trying to add something every year.
So here I am to learn all I can. I hear its as addicting as maple. only time will tell. I am getting excited!!!

I am getting very excited

Welcome! After you read those books, browse the forum. There is an abundance of information. Probably more than any one can digest, although we try :)

Adding one new thing a year . . . after 10 years you'll have your hands full for sure!

Hello and Welcome!

I'm sure you'll learn a lot about bees and beekeeping here. Be sure to check out the "How to Start Beekeeping" subforum - it contains many good tips for those just starting out.

Besides reading all you can, I recommend getting involved in a local beekeeping club. Clubs are great places to find mentors and get connected with nearby beekeepers. Plus, clubs often offer beginning beekeeping classes, and, since much of beekeeping is location-specific, the local beeks can help guide you with what beekeeping practices work best in your area.
