Hello Tomas, I'm not sure if you remember me. I met you about a year ago during a top bar harvest demonstration which you held at your house.


Again, not sure if you remember, but you had prepared some excellent mead some time before your demonstration, which you shared with us. ... I was curious to know if you wouldn't mind sharing your recipe?


I came across a recipe that uses cinnamon and vanilla beans off the internet, but I hate to waste my very first harvest on some horrible internet mead potion.


Hope to hear back from you!

Are you selling honey this early in the year? I keep getting desperate calls from allergy sufferers trying to get some honey and pollen! Also, I just heard you are teaching the beekeeping class at Abq Old School. I'd like to check out your class. You should post it on Abq Beeks website.

Hi Tomas

Its Nonnine and Marvin. We attended your last honey retrieval demonstration. We tasted your mead. We could use your help. We're having lots of trouble with our 2 hives. One is a large barrel hive we. We think it requeened about 3 wks ago. We just opened it and there are at least 2 fallen combs. The other one had a queen 3 weeks ago but when we opened today, the brood pattern is very spotty, very little honey.

Hey Tomas
First of all thanks for having us all over for the honey harvest demo.
We breifly spoke about trading some work for a top bar in the spring.
I just got a hat, veil, and gloves and was hoping I could help out whenever you need help with the hives in exchange for a little honey or just for the experience..Thanks again for the demo and the mead!
Eddie Lujan or 702-6120

I'm seeking assistance getting a top-bar hive going in South Valley. My plan is to catch a wild swarm, and I could use a bar of comb to help get the colony started in the right direction. Get in touch if you can help... 414-7801.
