HONEY BEES 

We are new to beekeeping.  We hope to be able to keep our bees going and eventually collect some honey but from what I've learned, there is a learning curve in keeping them here in Michigan.    

There is so much to learn on keeping bees regardless of where you live.  Beekeeping is an expensive hobby to begin - from the hives, beekeeping suits, frames, tools, smokers to buying the bees, it is expensive to keep these necessary insects alive.  Being able to harvest honey is a bonus.  

 

We've taken a beginner beekeeping course at Michigan State University, joined a local bee club, and we have a few books about keeping bees.  

 

We will see how we do over-wintering the bees.  It's definitely a challenge!
