    By Philip Lanier March 14, 2012 – 1:26 pmLast week, I accompanied Bill while he tedned to some hives. I realized that beekeeping is something I’m capable of enjoying and working hard at to master. I have friends who beekeep and I have another who is taking Bill’s class now. I would like to sign up for the class in Novemeber. Do you prefer charge or check and how should it be made out.Prior to the class, I want to purchase this spring a starter kit, one additional hive and begin beekeeping. One 10 acres, I have an excellent location for the hives near water and lots of surrounding forest and farmland. I’m not sure I can learn enough to take the certification test by next June, but I’d like to shoot for that.
