1st of all, curious on where you’re located. For I would like to at least keep up with others that might be close to my area. I work in uptown Dallas I will have my hive at my home in North Dallas. I’m presently signed up for a class just north of Houston next month.
2nd, I’m here just to learn how to inspect, how to look for diseases, what diseases and other issues with keeping bees. Ideas on how to enhance their well-being and environment. If any of that can be offered to me by yourself or others it would be greatly appreciated for I am certainly looking for a local mentor.
3rd, not sure if this is even a valid question, but wanting to understand about giving away or selling the honey I get from my hive. For right now I do not have any hive or experience. And not sure if there’s any labeling or inspections that need to occur in order to give away or sell my honey.
4th, I wish I could’ve gotten my flow hive right away, in many ways I’m looking back and seeing this as a blessing. It’s forcing me to become part of my local beekeeping community, getting prepared with materials and some knowledge experience. I understand the practical experience will come with time.
Would love to be invited to a local beehive just to start taking in information.
