This blog is for beekeepers in Northern climates. I will be describing what I am doing with my bees on a monthly schedule.

This blog explains how I keep bees. It works for me, it might not work for you. Use my methods at your own risk.
Always wear protective clothing and use a smoker when working bees.
The winter has been great for the bees so far. Colonies have had very little stress from cold weather. Still no cold weather on the horizon. I am hoping for some snow for some insulation for when the cold finally shows.
I have kept bees for 28 years and run 25 colonies. We have changed our business name to Bees and Honey LLC. We are still selling honey at our Stillwater location.
Nature's Nectar LLC Bee Supply has moved to Oakdale.
