I am beekeeper in Keighley West Yorkshire, I have decided to write a diary blog of my beekeeping exploits.
I started beekeeping in May 2014 after completing a weekend course with the Bradford Beekeepers association.
We got our 1st hive on the 25th May from Hull. Gill, a member of the Beverly beekeepers who I been talking to for a couple of week, she sold me a hive and colony at a very reasonable price.
Our 2nd colony came in July from Gerrard at Shelley Bees, Huddersfield. This was a Nuc of Buckfast bees.
I attended a preparing for winter course, this was at Castle Douglas the Beeman. Well worth the long trip up, a very nice man and a very educational course.
2 more Nucs acquired from Garrard at Shelley Bees late in the year to over winter.
