My name is Phil and I’m from the Texas Hill Country. My grandfather kept bees and I used to spend my summers on his ranch. I recently purchased two sets of flow frames and an Apimaye ergo hive at an estate sell. I’m currently building a second hive.
I know a lot has changed in beekeeping from the 1970’s when I worked my grandfather’s hives. I have been researching this topic and this forum has been helpful as has several books.
I have decided to follow Michael Bush’s approach to beekeeping. The packages I’ve ordered are from Bee Weaver and will arrive in the spring of 2018. I have a small orchard that is next to a lake which will be the new home for my bees.
I look forward to the discussions.
