About Me

Hi there! I’m a small animal veterinarian living in upstate New York on an old farm, keeping bees. I started reading about bees, attending beekeeping meetings, classes and seminars in the Spring of 2013. My first bees were two packages installed on April 26, 2014 into two Langstroth hives. I have the “bee fever” for sure. Hoping to give out some basic information to those thinking about keeping bees in their back yard and sharing how fun it is!

You can follow me on Instagram, too where I post as @bad_ass_bees.

My first package of bees. I'm ridiculously happy.
