There are many reasons people decide to start raising bees. Some just want to do something that gets them outside. Some always love nature and want to be closer, raising bees gets you up close with nature! Some want to push the limits and see what beekeeping is all about, it doesn’t matter if you’re on the roof of an apartment building or have 2 acres in the country. Both places work fine for Home Beekeeping.
My journey into Home Beekeeping started with my first taste of some local honey. It tasted so good…..I never tasted anything like it. After doing some research I found out that honey would taste different from bees raised in areas of different flowers. The taste difference was startling!
I’ve been ill for a long time and one of the natural healing substances is fresh honey and the royal jelly from the hive. Purchasing from the store can be quite expensive. So I decided that I love nature and these insects with stingers could be controlled since bees have been cultivated for centuries. I wanted to get better by and I decided to do some home beekeeping.
I have to admit. At first I was afraid of bees and the thought of home beekeeping scared the pants off of me. I did research, visited some bee farms, had some friends who had hives…. all to learn as much as I could. I purchased books, equipement….I made equipment and tools. I absorbed everything I could.
“The Home Beekeeping Guide” is a guide that you can use to start your own backyard beekeeping. Its a result of my experiences. Important facts I’ve learned. I designed it so anyone with an interest in doing something with home beekeeping can catch a peek into what it all entails.
I’ve owned large companies. I owned some small businesses. I worked as a contractor/carpenter. My best times are ones that I get to spend some time outside. Beekeeping has been one of the most relaxing projects I’ve attempted. Learning about the process has been just as enjoyable. If you have some young children, learning about bees is a fascination field of study and your children will learn more about their surrounds and these beautiful little creates….perfect for homeschoolers.
