Hello from sunny AZ! We have a goat ranch in the beautiful high desert of SE AZ. Our hive is on order at Dadant and bees will be coming from BeeWeaver the first week of April 2011. I've been doing my homework but still have a long ways to go! Plan to bee 100% organic, though not certified. Our long term goal is to be 100% self sustaining on our 72 acres on the desert.
