Dan Adams’s Courses
Nucs are expensive! Instead, you can catch a swarm, and benefit from the local genetics. Swarm traps or baited decoy hives are a simple and cost effective way to catch feral swarms. We'll teach you how!
When most people think of maple syrup production, they envision a Vermont family farm, snow blanketing the ground, and vast forests of maple trees with steel buckets handing from them. They also think of all the equipment normally associated with maple syrup production (evaporators, holding tank, etc). However, making maple syrup can be done on a small scale, and is actually incredibly simple. One taste of your own maple syrup (hot off the stove) may be enough to get you hooked.
