Hello everyone! I live in North central Missouri and this will be my fourth year raising bees. My husband and I own an apple orchard and the bees sure help with pollination, plus all that delicious honey. I currently have two hives and am adding another this spring. Beekeeping has been educational, fascinating and very rewarding. I have definitely had my share of ups and downs but I would highly recommend doing it to anyone. Would love to hear from anyone who lives in my area. Always welcome advice from fellow beekeepers!
