I started beekeeping in 2001 after my son purchased three hives from a co-worker who was moving out of state. At the time, he knew nothing about bees but had an interest in them. He brought the hives home to our acreage and set them in the field. Unfortunately, those three hives did not make it through the winter. In the spring of 2001, I heard about a beekeeping class, enrolled and purchased three nucs of bees and was on my way to becoming a beekeeper. I took my excess honey that year to the local farmers market and sold what I had. The following year I ordered ten more nucs. Each year I have tried to expand my products. From our honey and beeswax we now have many products from raw liquid honey, to flavored honey and creamed honey. I use the wax in lip balms, beeswax lotion bars, foot bars and include it in the goat milk and honey soaps and other bath and body products you can find on our website.
I had been interested in attending the downtown market for several years, but the weather had always concerned me. With the CDM Curbside I decided to try and see where it would go.
I will be offering our raw liquid honey, flavored bears, creamed honey, honey sticks, bee pollen, lip balms, beeswax lotion bars, foot bars and our goat milk and honey soaps
