I started keeping bees in 1968. My interest was kindled by a farmer from Howes Valley, Jack Della-ca who had kept a commercial apiary when he was younger. Jack was my first mentor. I started with one hive and subsequently that grew to three hives. My first extraction was done on a small table in a small hut my wife and I stayed in every second weekend.
There are many books for beginners. However, as most of my learning was from watching, asking questions and being shown how to, I wanted to pass on my knowledge the same way to new beekeepers. This video is the result of more than 40 years of learning and working with bees and I hope new beekeepers can feel the same and work with their bees with great confidence.
I LOVE TO SHARE MY PASSION AND KNOWLEDGE OF APIARY WITH PEOPLE KEEN TO DISCOVER THE AMAZING WORLD OF BEES
