Hello from Arkansas
« on: December 02, 2010, 11:29:46 PM »
Hello from Greers Ferry Lake , Arkansas.  I will be getting my first bees next spring. Natural beekeeping is my goal. I have been reading a lot about beekeeping lately . I especially like Michael Bush's web page.  Starting with all 8-frame medium Lang hives  is my plan right now,  although I am intrigued with Top-Bar  and Warre Hives.  I am a carpenter by trade , so I plan on building most of my equipment.

Welcome to the forum.  It's great that being a carpenter you will be able to make a lot of your own stuff.

Dave,
Welcome to the forum.

I just spoke to a lady from the "Lady Beekeepers of Arkansas" the other day. Now that would be a group to join.....  :roll:

I've always said we need more ladies..... :-D
