So, here we are… the very first post of the Beelievers. We are two sisters seeking a summer adventure and are here to document what we hope will be a exciting new hobby.
We’re talking Beekeeping here folks!
This idea just came to life a few short weeks ago. It became a spark, which has quickly set fire, and now we are just rolling along with it. We hope that as very novice beekeepers we can take you along the steps we have set- to conquer our goal of starting a hive and eventually harvesting local, organic honey. It’s a lofty endeavor, (and we are a little intimidated, mostly of getting stung) but so excited to learn!
In just a couple of weeks we have learned so much about these amazing little creatures. Not only can they make honey, (delicious) but they are important to a thriving ecosystem. Also, bees are just plain awesome!
So, we have ordered some books and signed up for a class…. and away we fly!
Wish us luck
