My journey into beekeeping began with a beekeeping course at North Georgia Technical College. This hobby began with four hives. The hobby began to grow, almost immediately, as neighbors and friends, wanted local honey for medicinal purposes.
Before I knew it, I had 8 hives and then 16 hives to keep up with the demand for local honey. This eventually grew to over 100 hives. The next challenge was to meet the demand for beekeeping supplies and honey bees.
My home was quickly over come with the garage being my warehouse/store and several rooms in the house used for storage for the first three years. The next step was to purchase a 5,000 sq. ft. building to grow our small business. As this hobby grew into a full-time business, it was time for me to leave a 23 year career in commercial banking and take the business to the step.
