Let’s be honest: Keeping Backyard Honey Bees

Let’s be honest: Keeping Backyard Honey Bees


Interested in keeping bees in an ethical and natural manner? I’ve been a bee keeper for four years.  Maybe not as long as some, but boy has it been both exhilarating and delightful!  I’m looking forward to getting more years under my belt. Come have an honest discussion with me about keeping back yard honey bees (the good, the bad and the ugly) to see if it’s right for you.  Learn what I do and don’t, what’s worked for me and what hasn’t, including my successes, failures and plans going forward.  This will be an honest discussion on learning resources and getting started.  I’ll bring along some tools and supplies, discuss rules and regulations for keeping honey bees in Omaha (and offer suggestions on where to check in your area), where to purchase and more.  If weather permits, and my honey bees are cooperative, I’ll also bring along some of my ladies in an observation hive, comb and honey. 

Add me!
