Growing up on the family farm here in Rio Grande, I was familiar with bee hives and the benefits honey bees bring to the produce. In 2007, I decided to get into beekeeping as a hobby. Soon, this hobby grew into a business. I now have between 40-50 hives managed for honey production, plus several managed for queen rearing. In 2016, I was certified as a Master Beekeeper by the Eastern Apiculture Society.
Working with honeybees has been one of the most fascinating ventures I’ve ever been a part of. This little creature never fails to amaze me, engage me, and pique my interest in the way it’s life is lived and the many facets that are part of the honey bee colony. Everything from how they survive the winter to how a new queen is raised!
I still live in Rio Grande with my wife, Bonnie, and around 2,000,000 interesting, friendly, honey producing pets. We look forward to getting to know you through the website and through personal contact whenever you are around. Stop by if you get the chance!
