I'm a new beekeeper (second year).  I started out with two hives last year and have four hives now. I am planning for four more next spring.  I have reached the age where if there is something I always wanted to do, I should get with it!  I originally got the bees to pollinate my garden and orchard.  However I have had to learn about honey to handle all the excess from the hives.  This year I have manage to sell all my girls could produce. 
The more I learn, the more I realise I don't know.  But this is the most fun I have had in years...

Welcome, it is my second year also.   I am a pure hobbyist, but as I get closer to retirement I might start looking at trying to pull in a little cash.

I live on the Cumberland Plateau, halfway between Nashville and Knoxville.  Marketing honey is not what I had in mind when I started this hobby; but it has been an enjoyable sideline.  Thanks for all the welcomes!

Yes, I live near Crossville.  But I live 45 minutes from Fairfield.  I'm in the south end of the county. (The Sticks!)

Kimbrell.  Welcome, you have found the right place to learn, and have some quiet time and fun.  Great place for lots of pictures to look at of people keeping their bees too (and lots of other pictures as well).  Anyways, again, welcome.  Have a wonderful, great day.  Cindi
