Welcome to my Blog about How to Start Beekeeping.
Keeping Bees is a very hot topic in the media these days for a number of different reasons. Many of which seem to have captured the hearts of the public. In wanting to do the best that they can to help these tiny but extremely important pollinators.
This website is all about how to start beekeeping
You may already have an interest in the natural world.
And you might have harboured the thought that you would like to keep bees.
Home of the Busy Bee is here to help you start.
Whatever your interest, be warned you are very likely to become hooked!
A little about Me
I grew up on an arable farm in East Anglia, the only livestock to be seen was Chickens (and the occasional Duck).
Back then the Summers seemed never ending, and the whole countryside seemed to be alive with Butterflies, Birds.
And of course lots of things that buzz and sting!
There was an old guy in the Village that used to keep bees.
This seemed a daft thing to want to do. Who would willingly put themselves up to be stung by bees.
Once a year though he would come round to the house and deliver some honey he had harvested for my Mum and Dad, I remember how they used to look forward to his visit every year.
So here I am now many years later, setting up a website to educate and teach (to the best of my ability) the hobby of Beekeeping. I should add here that I do actually keep bees myself now and have done for a number of years, so it will not be a case of the blind leading the blind (insofar as the bees will always do what they want to do, and sod what the books and sages say they should be doing).
Purpose of this website.
I hope this blog is useful for the Beginner to the hobby, but also to those that already keep bees.
There will be a lot of content aimed to get people started in this fascinating and absorbing hobby as well as items of general interest.
So please enjoy your visit and make this your number one site for Honey bees.
