Hello from NH
« on: February 20, 2011, 10:56:59 AM »
Just wanted to say hello from NH - got tipped off here from someone on Backyard Chickens forum I believe. I'm hoping to learn how the whole beekeeping thing works in order to get set up - for some reason, having some land, chickens, and beekeeping just seems like a natural fit. My family members are worried they'll get stung, but I won't focus on that yet until I get the hang of how this whole process works. They'll come around.  :lol:

Glad this place is here, and looking forward to bee-coming experts like you all. :lol:

How come chickens and bees go hand in hand it seems?  Welcome to the forum.

Hello and Welcome!

This forum is a good place to learn more about bees and beekeeping. Be sure to check out the tutorials on the main Beemaster page ("Backyard Beekeeping Course").

I also encourage you to get involved with a local beekeeping club. Clubs often offer beginner's classes and are great places to find mentors and get connected to nearby beekeepers.
