How do I find a beekeepers club in my area so that I can make some connections with people and learn more? We are planning to put in between 1/4-1/2 acre of fruit trees next year, should I get them established first before getting bees? Can the bee hive or hives go in the middle of the orchard area or should it be somewhere else? What can I do with beeswax? Any good books on the subject? Or ideas other than candles and lip balm which I'm sure we will try? I'm waiting for my first library book to come in but do you know of any titles on beekeeping that are worth requesting? Thanks for any and all help.
