Part of "Birds & Bees"
The promise of honey leads many farmers to consider raising bees at some point. For the few hours each week required to tend to the beehive it might be an attractive addition to your homestead efforts.
But before diving in, it is important to ask yourself several questiions to determine if keeping bees is right for you.
This Course segment contains links to questionnaires, with valuable advice as you consider your responses. You will hear from beekeepers in Hawai‘i as they bring you to their hives. Additional links lead to straightforward practical information on setting out a hive and bee behavior with the hive.
