  1. Hello 🙂 I am hoping to start a small family apiary in Tennessee. Blount County is one of the main areas I have been looking. I am a Bee beginner , im wondering if you may have some tips about areas in Blount county that would be a good location.

  2. I am very interested in learning the art of bee keeping. I am guessing that the virtual class in Feb 26 and 27 is where I need to start. Could you please advise me on where I need to start because I am very excited about this new adventure. Thank you
