Matt from southwest MO. 2nd generation beekeeper with bout 30 yr break between. Swore off bees after high school. Dad and I managed hives and trucked to Cali for almonds, strictly comb honey. Miller Honey out of California bought all we could produce. Fast forward 30 yrs, started CSA parttime and noticed less honeybees. Had heard rumors about decline but wasn?t really aware of how much has changed. Started back into it with 2 colonies. Now running about 20. Extracted honey first time last yr and sold out. Gonna try chunk and comb honey next yr. Looking to get back up to speed on beekeeping and sharing what little I know. Thank you for letting me in

Hi!  Don't know about where you live but chunk and comb honey sell at gold prices here!  Let us know how it goes please.
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.
