New here and was just talking to my friend about his apple orchard in Michigan that was fruitless this year do to lack of bee pollination. So I got to thinking and thought I might need a new hobby so why not bee keeping. Was interested in learning more about it and was curious if there are some good online resources to explore before I head out and buy some boxes.
Additionally I heard that some people get grants from the government to set up hives, is this true?
Any help would be great, and if there is already a thread with all this info please just post below and I am happy to read up there.
