  1. Hey, gals. I am in the metro and have questions about the BEST resources in setting up a new hive, for complete novices. Can you direct me to the best books, websites, classes, etc? Thanks so much! Please contact via email!

    1. I would definitely suggest taking a class. Most of the classes in the metro area will be starting shortly. The Iowa Honey Producers Association has a list of all classes in the state of Iowa. (https://www.iowahoneyproducers.org/) We especially suggest the Indianola (FBI Club) Beginning Beekeeping class and Altoona Beginning Beekeeping class. I would also suggest joining a beekeeping club. All the clubs in the state of Iowa can also be found on the Iowa Honey Producers Website. For companies to buy equipment and bees from, we suggest Spring Valley Honey in Perry and Lappe’s Bee Supply and Honey Farm in Peru, IA. Here are the links to two of our blog posts about beekeeping books: https://dasselacres.com/2018/02/15/abigails-favorite-beekeeping-books/ and https://dasselacres.com/2018/02/12/bethanys-favorite-honey-bee-books/. I hope this helps.
