I live in central michigan and am planning on getting two or three hives this spring. I love gardening and also keep poultry. I remember my father keeping bees when I was younger, and now we (myself, wife, and children) have been buying raw honey from amish. But, I think I want to pay myself instead of them. :lol:

Welcome Jimmy! Order your bees now! They will all be spoken for until late Summer.
Well I am planning on going to a local beekeepers meeting here on Jan 3. Last year i know they ordered together there, and I am hoping they will do the same and there are some that sell there. Does that sound advisable to do? or when you say order now, do you mean now?

That's a good start,join the bee club, get to know the people and get local bees. The beekeeper you buy them from will probably be a good mentor. :thumbsup: Welcome to the fourm. Jack
