Hello everyone.  I am a brand new beekeeper as of yesterday and am looking forward to learning how to do this completely organically as nature intended.  I have one acre with lots of different fruit trees, bushes, plants and a very large garden.  I also have 15 chickens that I raise 100% organic.

Hello and Welcome!

I'm sure you'll find this forum to be a good resource for learning more about bees and beekeeping.

Stow - I actually lived there for a brief period - once upon a time 40+ years ago...

If you haven't already, I recommend getting involved with a local beekeeping club. Clubs are great places to find mentors and get connected to nearby beekeepers:
