Our Story

Honey Bees? Are you kidding?

Our kids wanted bees – We thought they were crazy! To come up with new and innovative reasons to tell our kids we “cannot and will not raise bees!” we began to consider the possibilities.  Ruth, who is a behavior therapist for special needs children, thought maybe the bees would be an alternative activity for our children, particularly our child with autism. Joel, who is a commercial equipment appraiser, of course conducted exhaustive research into the practical application of becoming a bee farmer and the potential business opportunities. After a couple years reading books and searching the internet, Joel & Ruth purchased a Starter Kit, a couple hives, and some Nucs. We were fortunate that we had mentors from the beginning who were willing to help us out and answer our questions. Better yet, they let us help them manage their hives and gain first-hand experience.

Community

Today we are active members in five different beekeeper associations. Joel regularly attends beekeeping seminars and conferences. And the books keep piling up!! Additionally, Joel has embarked on a 5-year intensive program to become a Certified Master Beekeeper through the Eastern Apiculture Society.
