Farm/Business History:

I’ve been keeping bees since my freshman year in high school in 1996. I was introduced to beekeeping in an agricultural education program at E.O. Smith and was instantly hooked. I currently manage 75 hives and continue to expand my operation. My business motto is to provide a valuable resource to the local community in regards to bee related products as well education on honeybees and beekeeping.

At the Market since:


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.
