    Certainly seek advice etc. locally - Beekeepers are an extremely friendly bunch - just like this forum in fact!
    i started last year and currently have c.25lb of honey sat on my kitchen work surface
    It's worth every sting!

    Very interesting, I have started this year. Look carefully at the price as new hives are expensive and there is a lot of second hand stuff around.

    If you want a few thousand free bees, there's a nest above my garage door.... You'll need a cherry picker though.

    There is,of course, a downside to the joy of beekeeping
    Some of mine (if indeed i ever owned them) have relocated to a nearby tree about 40 foot up
    You need a sense of humour if nothing else
    Good luck!
