My daughter-in-law Anne and I took this on as joint project. We are pleased with the results of our first year in beekeeping. The bees seemed quite happy (I only got stung a couple of times). The honey production seemed to be within the Ontario averages., maybe a bit on the low side, but hey, itwas our first year. My daughter-in-law Anne and I are planning on expanding the beyyard by adding two more colonies (hives) in 2013. If you are interested in buying honey in 2013, drop us an email.
