Hello everyone..My boyfriend and I have been doing some research on bee keeping..We are seriously thinking of taking up this hobby..Money is tight with us..What's the best way to learn? Thru a mentor/bee keeper/ paid class from a bee keeper /the state..We live in NJ..Reading books..watching videos? Are there any bee keepers on this forum from NJ..preferably Mercer Co..Hunterdon Co..I'd love to work hands on with an established bee keeper that is willing to teach..I'd be willing to help them with their bees..Or barter..I'm a professional pet sitter for 17 yrs..I'm learning about bees..don't have much experience on farms but could learn..Any information is appreciated..Have a wonderful day..

welcome to the site.  we do have members from NJ and you can probably look on the members section to find some.

i take it you are not getting bees this year?  that gives you time to read everything in the library, hopefully find a find a bee club in your area, maybe a mentor, ask LOTS of questions, and start collecting your stuff.

hopefully some of the NJ people wii chime in here and help you get started.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Finding a mentor through an association and working for them for a while is the best way to learn about bees.  Welcome to the forum.

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all.

Hi Susan.  I am a member (and officer) of the Northwest NJ Beekeepers Association based in Hunterdon/Warren Counties.  Given that I'm new on this forum I can't post a link but you can search for NWNJBA in a search engine and you'll find us.

We have a meeting coming up in the Flemington area on April 21st.  We're going to install a package and demonstrate how to split hives in a few different ways. The hands on session will take place at our mentoring hives location.   On that day we are also going to have a 'Getting Started in Beeekeeping" public meeting at North Hunterdon High School in the afternoon.
