Getting Started

Yes, I’m behind the eight-ball. Sometimes I can get overwhelmed and not know where or how to start. And trying to cram all the information in at once is even more overwhelming.

So, now that I’ve got all that out of the way, I figure what better way to learn the process than to start with the bee. Get to know the bee. Find out what drives the bee. How important are bees to our world? That’s the question that had the most impact on me, how important are they? Once I started, I was quite shocked, even scared to know that elimination of the bees could have such an impact on our society.

I watched this TED talk by Marla Spivak, which started my though wheels in motion. What could I do to make a difference? All the sudden I did not just want the honey from these bees, but I wanted to save them. We have all become such a lazy society that we have forgot what it takes to keep our food supply going. Here’s this amazing TED talk by Marla Spivak. I hope you enjoy as much as I did.

So, now that are you thinking? Do you have a change of heart, even a change of urgency in the downward spiral our country is taking with our food supply. We have moved so far from nature that we cannot see that our foods are what is causing cancer, diabetes, thyroid disease, and the list goes on. So how can we change this? One person at a time. It is up to us. It cannot be any simpler than that.

So my journey begins with the bee.

Beginning a honey bee farm is not as easy as it seems. With anything else, it takes research, knowing the business and best of all, knowing how to get started. It can be overwhelming at times, but I invite you to join me in following my journey as I attempt to grow a hobby into a business.
