Hi All I have a 15 year old son that is very interested in starting his own hives. We live on 56 acres so we have plenty of space. Can anyone tell me which is the best company to order supplies from. I started to buy bees last spring but found buying equipment a little intimidating. Are the beginner bee kits good to start with? How do I know EXACTLY what we need to get started. Any recommended reading that may help? We've never done this before and don't know anyone that does so I don't have anyone to reference. It is important to me that we be completely set up before we buy bees. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
