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.

Our success is deeply rooted in offering outstanding customer service, knowledgeable employees that can give solid beekeeping advice, and great quality.  We are striving to stock products that are Made in the USA. 

We are also committed to be Eco-Friendly in re-using materials that come with being an internet based company.  We will recycle packing for boxes and recycle computer equipment.

In 2017, we became the #1 shipper on honey bees on the east coast and mid-west.  We could not have grown without repeat orders from our loyal customer base.  We could not have grown without very dedicated employees.  During peak season we employ 19 people within our community.  Our shipping crew also does an excellent job.  From crating all shipping order to labeling to sorting the shipment to loading the shipment it takes dedicated employee's.  Our employees work in the rain, late in the early ours of the morning to ensure your bees are at their peak freshness when shipped.

Every successful company has rock solid employee's.  We are no exception! 

Kendra is responsible for our retail operation, shipping, and managing our "Bee Day's". 

Michelle is responsible for booking all bee orders for the entire season, managing our technology, and helping our retail store.

Shelly is our customer service representative and will ensure your order is correct. 

Will has been with us for a year and is a customer service representative.
