I'm brand new to this forum as of a few minutes ago. My father has been keeping bees in upstate NY for a number of years now, and I'm finally going to get into it with him. I've been away with the military, but am heading back North in a few months, and can't wait to learn all I can about beekeeping. He just loves it.
I joined because I'm excited about this, and would like to learn some of the basics now. I'd love to find a local beekeeper that I can learn from, but would be content to keep learning from all of the informative posts I've seen on the forum.
