Hi, I’m Skip. Actually I live in Sheffield, MA and would like to join your group. I have been attempting to keep bees for about 5 years. I began in Thomaston CT with 2 colonies in my back yard and 1 on a farm in Morris, CT.
We moved to Sheffield 3 years ago, and experienced Black Bears the first year, then that huge winter a few years ago.
This year we experienced one colony swarm in April, another swarm in June, so we now have 2 colonies and hope to learn a lot more about proper beekeeping!!!
