    Hi! 🙂 I stumbled upon your blog after googling beekeeping. I live in Lynden. I am so very interested in it. That is how far I have gone though. What is the first step? A course? Could you point me in the right direction?
    Thanks!
    Michelle

      Hi Michelle,

      Welcome to the blog! First thing to get is the book Beekeeping for Dummies. It is a great overview on beekeeping and kind of sets the stage for you. It also goes in depth if you are more interested. I like the way that it lays out what you need and how to get started. You are little late for starting this year (most bees have already been sold), but you can get your ducks in a row for next year. It’s a wonderful hobby. I’ll keep you posted on beekeeping through this blog!

      Thanks for checking in –

      -Kate

    Hi Kate, I’m glad your family had a great visit to our Whole Grain Store last weekend. Next time you come down this way try for a weekday and see how the actual mill operates on a factory tour (Monday – Friday at 10am).

    Do you know my friend Grace, at Grace Harbor Farms in Custer? When you stop in for your goat milk soap and lotions, fresh milk and yoghurt tell her I said hi!

    I stumbled on to your page. I am a second year bee keeper. I was thinking of next year trying to collect pollen. I do not know how to do this do you have any helpful hints. We did well selling our honey at the local farmers market but I had a few inquires about pollen. I see pollen traps for sell but I don’t know how to collect and perserve it.

      Hi Cheryl,

      I don’t know much about collecting pollen because I have never done it. I have seen the traps for sale and from what I understand it’s pretty labor intensive (hence the high prices…). Storage seems like a cinch – just a glass jar or bottle with an airtight lid. I would recommend scouring the internet some more and checking out a great beekeeping book “Natural Beekeeping”. Thanks so much for swinging on in here and checking out the blog/project.

      Thanks, Kate
