I have been keeping honey bees for over 4 years, starting out with one hive just to help pollinate my fruit trees. Once I started I increased my hive numbers quickly to increase honey production.
Currently I am a student in the Oregon Master Beekeeper Program put on by Oregon State University and Oregon State Beekeepers Association. Along with being a participant in the program, I also mentor new first year students, which is very rewarding.
I am a member of the Oregon State Beekeepers Association and Linn Benton Beekeepers Association where I am a board member for the club.
I love to talk “bees”, so if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
