I am also new this year and have found that having a mentor has been awesome. Joining the Guilford County Beekeepers opened me up to a whole bunch of awesome guys. They will come across at the drop of a hat. Had two here today as I was unsure how my big hive was doing. Needed reassurance.
We opened and inspected all 4 hives - confirming all queens are on overdrive - and stores are super. Have 20 more frames drawn and almost capped. Took a box off last week and 3 frames 3 weeks ago.
I know Alamance guys are just as great and have heard from Forsyth too. So there are many options for you.

I was lucky enough to be given one hive, then was given help to catch a swarm across the road,and finally my nucs arrivedI am located in Trinity.
Did you start with packages or nucs?
