Re: [beekeeping] Re: Newbie with a ????
- That would be GREAT Rick! I was hoping to get a nuc rather then packaged. If you could email me a number I would like to get a request in early. I have a man on 140 down the road from my house the has beekeeping supplies I have met him before and I may check that out. I have ordered catalogs from the below companies and will check them out as well. Thanks so much.

I would recommend you join the Carroll County beekeepers, they have a very good program their and good networking. As far as suppliers, I have used Mann Lake and Dadant. I was very happy. I had a bad experience with Betterbee so I do not use them anymore. Good luck in your efforts, if you are looking for Local Nuc's I have a guyup here who you could probably get some from.Rick

Hi Tina, I am a first year newbee. I ordered a lot of my equipement
from Walter T. Kelley. I am very satisfied with the quality and the
way they ship to you. They have been very nice to me, and when I
ordered bees I ordered from them.
When they had any questions about my order, they would call and then
we could talk about the order and find out exactly what it was that I
wanted and how they could help me.
I also ordered from a couple of other places, but Walter T. Kelley
was the one that stuck in my mind because they were always so helpful
and the beehive parts that I did order from them were of excellent
quality and I will order from them again and again.
Just my Opinion and others will be sure to share theirs with you too.
