“Let’s buy a ranch,” she said….”It’ll be fun,” she said.
Well, it IS fun, but it’s also a lot of hard work. And, since we have all this land, we thought we’d do something good with it. We decided to raise bees to help support the bee population AND get some free honey (win-win)! Not that beekeeping is ‘free’ by any means…
And thus began our journey into beekeeping.
After watching hundreds of videos on raising bees, reading beekeeping ‘how to’ (and how NOT to) type books, we jumped in and bought three hives and a bazillion bees. Watching them build out their homes is fascinating. We never knew how amazing these little creatures were!
