Small scale beekeeping (ie managing 2-10 hives) can be a very gratifying and enthralling hobby. It seems nowadays lots of people are considering getting a couple hives for their farm or urban oasis. Here’s a few things to keep in mind to get started while your excitement grows.
There’s a saying around here that if you ask three beekeepers the same question, you’ll get four different answers. This is meant to communicate that everyone has their own style of beekeeping and everyone finds different ways to do things that works best for them. We really just want to encourage you to educate yourself, find a mentor, use your hive to build a sense of community and have fun with your bees!
