ABOUT US

Local Beekeepers

Unlike the colonies we tend, as local beekeepers we are an untrained, self-taught, rag-tag, group of un-professionals, grateful for the bees who do most of the work.

Loves Trees... IDK

Passion

I thought passion sounded better than obsession, fixation, or constant mental preoccupation. My wife warns people not to ask me about apple trees or honeybees since the conversation may be more involved than someone intended to indulge. Obviously, honeybees and fruits trees are among the most fascinating facets of God’s creation. A beehive is an entire civilization in a box that requires care and attention to stay healthy, grow, reproduce, and provide delicious honey.  Selling honey is more of an afterthought that pays for our local beekeeping family’s insect fixation!

Ah yes, passion sounds better than fixation. 

Frequently Asked Questions for Local Beekeepers

If someone would be so kind to ask a question, I would be able to fill the FAQ section.

In the meantime, this is what I have so far.

No. We have to sell some and leave some for the bees to eat during winter.

No, you’ve had more than enough.

No, you don’t have a bee suit. Maybe you’ll get one for your birthday. 

Crap… Take him inside for Tylenol, Motrin, maybe an antihistamine and Secret Life of Pets 2.

Our local beekeeping team’s first rescued swarm was in a neighborhood called Evans Mill in James City, New Bern, North Carolina, USA!

Well just about everywhere but here, originally imported from Europe in the 17th century. Common breeds came from Europe, including Russia and Italy. Honeybees also hail from Africa and Asia. It’s funny the North Carolina state insect is the Honeybee. It’s the ultimate insect cultural appropriation if you’re into that sort of sting.
