I am a small beekeeper from Central Texas.  I raise a bit of a honey crop and maintain a queen breeder's licenses issued by the state of Texas.

Approximately 50 years ago I began beekeeping as a 4-H project along the western slope of the Appalachian Mtns (very western edge of THE Washington Plantation). Over the years I have kept bees in Florida, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas (in 4 very different locations), and North Dakota.  I have had the opportunity to work for three commercial bee operations and participate in the migratory movement of bees.  Some years back (decades actually) I self taught himself queen rearing.

In 2003, I decided to begin building something for his retirement years and slowly begin assembling bee equipment and adding hives with the primary goal of producing a small honey crop for the local community.  Adding to this original goal of producing a small honey crop, I also produce a small number of starter hives (often times called "nucs" (for nucleus) and queens. I currently maintains a Texas Queen Breeding Permit and a Texas Intrastate Bee Moving Permit.  Eventually I would like to be capable of producing a pretty bee that would be an acceptable specimen for beginner beekeepers.  I am also currently employed (very much part time) as the chief apiarist at the Texas A&M Honeybee Lab.

Sorry that I had missed you, I try to welcome everyone when they introduce themselves.

Welcome to the forum, You probably know as much if not more than the rest of us about bees.  Glad to have you here.
I have had bees about 3 or 4 years, still have a lot to learn.
