Steve,
 I have no bees yet. My Mentor will have some nucs that I can buy from her. Dadant is just a few miles from my farm so I should be able to get the hives, etc.

Hi !

I am 34 and have two hives! If I get promoted I will be moving to northern New Jersey or PA and then I will have 20 to 30!

I was introduced to beekeeping when I was young! got stung by 6 bees in 1986 when I foolishly tried to vandalize a hive for fun.  Leraned to respect the bees and then my cousin introduced me to beekeeping.  However, since 1989 we moved from the country to Gotham and reconected again this year after taking a course!

-Regards to all

I'm 23 and I just started. It's so interesting that I don't know why more young people don't get into it. Especially, with how important honey bees are to us!

hey Ashlee!
 This is just my opinion...
I think you're into bees and other people your age are'nt because you're of a "Higher Intelligence!" You can tell you mom and dad i said that! Maybe they'll get you another hive for your birthday, or Easter, or something like that!
 Uh oh,...You really dont have to tell them that.
 Last time i said that was when I called a colonel a jerk! I then told the airman who was making a delivery to me, for him,that he could tell the colonel I said that.....heh heh,...So the kid went and told him! I ended up getting a day off without pay! I even needed "Union representation" for that bit of counseling!...And I'm the shop steward!
 Theres more to this story....In the end, I was getting the better part of the deal, but thats too long a chapter for me to elaborate on right now.....I'm trying to cut back on the lenghths of my post replies! grin

I got interested in beekeeping when I was 28.  I didn't get my first hive until after I did a tour in Iraq. I am now 35 and this is my third year keeping bees. As for the younger crowd, I a three year old and a four year old, both of them want a bee suit and both of them like to sit near the hive entrances with me and talk about the bees.

How wonderful that your children have the opportunity to grow up with bees around.  I wish I had had my bees when my children were that age!
