Hello From Saugerties, NY!
« on: June 20, 2011, 06:04:55 PM »
Hello!
My name is Kris and I recently discovered this forum.  I have been beekeeping for a few years now with just a few colonies in my backyard.  I started out when I was probably 14 or 15 years old and I am 26 now.  My first hive was a softball sized swarm that landed in my parents shed.  Not knowing anything about beekeeping and having no beekeeping tools, my colony did not survive the winter.  It took me until I was 23 to get another colony and start doing it the right way!  (I use langs and 1 top bar hive now)  When I am not tending to the bees, I spend my time pursuing a masters degree for teaching history in high school and practicing falconry. 

I look forward to being a part of the forum!
