Farmer: Dominic Shooks

What We Sell:

Raw Honey, Raw Creamed Honey, Beeswax, Candles, & Lip Balm

Location:

We have hives in South Windham, Windham Center, Lebanon, and Chaplin

Farm/Business History:

I’ve been a beekeeper since high school, roughly 1996. I was introduced to beekeeping in an agricultural education program and was instantly fascinated. I’ve had a number of hives going since then, but have only recently started a business out of my hobby. My business model is set for growth and currently manage close to 35 hives. I plan to grow to 75 or 100 in 3 years. My business motto is to provide a valuable resource to the local community in regards to bee related products as well as education on honey bees and beekeeping.

Experience at the Market:

This is my first full time year. I made a few guest appearances last year and had a blast. I hope to be a part of this market for the entire foreseeable future.

Favorite Aspect of Market Day:

I enjoy educating people as I bring an observation hive to my table so people can get a real up close view of some of my bees. Don’t worry! They can’t get out! I love the looks on the kids face the most. And, of course, I enjoy getting some monetary return on my and my bees’ hard work.
