Hi Beesource users, i am a Jamaican beekeeper (80 colonies) who is looking to share and learn from all you lovers of this most fulfilling occupation. As you will all know i am located in a tropical climate however i think beekeeping practices mostly are the same everywhere. In my parish (Westmoreland) we run a vibrant local beekeeping association of which i am the P.R.O. in the future i intend to have no less than three hundred colonies.

Welcome isensiman. I'm sure that 80 colonies is alot in Jamaica, but 300 will be commercial I imagine. Best of luck to you in your venture.

I have met a handful of your fellow countrymen who spend most of the year in northern NY working in apple orchards. Some of them help me set hives and one guy wants to get one for himself to set up behind his house in Jamaica.

Making it a family affair is a great benefit, not only to the pocket book.
