Hi everybody, we are new at beekeeping this year and always have lots of questions to ask.
We have a small 50 acre farm, 5 acres are in garden the rest in hay and woods. We also raise chickens for eggs and meat, pigs and sheep.
I have personally noted there has been a decline of honeybees coming to our gardens to pollinate over the last 4 or 5 years, then started reading about all the terrible losses that beekeepers in the area and around the country have been having so though it best to help our garden out by learning about bees and beekeeping.
It has only been 2 months so far with our 3 package hives but they seem to be doing great and bustling with activity.
