beekeepers in Wisconsin?

Posted by claraserena WI (My Page) on

We live on 20 acres (clover, alfalfa, fruit trees, hawthorne, chokecherry, basswood)in northeast Wisconsin. We're interested in starting with bees. How likely is it that we could find a beekeeper who would set and maintain a hive on our land for some honey in exchange? I don't know that we are up to the initial investment of time and money it would take to do it ourselves. At some point we may be. I've done a google search to find a local beekeeper but no hits. How would we find someone?
I'm new to this forum.

Hi, I'm just getting started this year. I called my local extension office, and they gave me a list of local beekeepers in my area. Good Luck.
