Good honey starts with a good apiary. An apiary is a place
where small groups of beehives are kept.
These steps are needed to start a good apiary:
1. Choose a site:
That is easy to go to;
Away from people and noise, and safe from thieves;
Near a place where bees can find water;
Near flowers, and trees that produce flowers;
Protected from strong sun and winds;
It can be a place that is not useful for other activities such as
crop farming.
