I have a co-worker that has been talking to me about keeping bees. He has a great spot for several hives on 10 acres. I think he would like to give them a try but his wife is kinda holding him back. I have been bringing in magazines and catalogs for him to take home and read. Hoping to get his wife to say yes. He comes in every morning with questions and wants to talk about some neat he read. It's been fun for both! But, is there more I can do? I gave him this wonderful site. I would love to give him a starter hive but, that costs. with this being my second year I don't have any extra tools or hives laying around.
