Hi everyone ! My name is Melissa, and I am a newbie to beekeeping !! This past winter a friend told me about splitting his hive in the spring..... his hive had a big loss, so it's just NOW, in mid July, I have about 1500 bees in my hive ! This is all new to me, I only know what I've read. I have been a LONG time honeybee admirer, and now I am happy to have them here !! It's been a great learning experience so far ! Hope to learn much more here ...... so glad I found this place !
I am married, our 2 sons are grown and moved away. We have 6 grandchildren, but they live in another state. We live in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, on 12 acres with 2 draft horses, and 4 Labs. And now, with 1500 honeybees !!
