Meet Nathan, Owner and Operator
Ever since age 3, Nathan has been fascinated by honey bees. It was a pretty common occurrence to have to stop when passing a local roadside apiary just so he could excitedly watch the bees swarm around the hive entrances. By time he was age 7 the requests for his own bees began. While still stopping at roadside apiaries to watch the bees at this time, the discussions quickly began changing from "wow" to "how?"
We got Nathan his first hives in 2016 and he is constantly learning how to take care of his bees. We were very lucky and extremely grateful to have a mentor come to our farm every week to help Nathan learn his very first year. He learned so much to help him carry his own in the years that followed.
Since then, he has expanded his apiary buying new hives with the money he has made from the honey he has sold, and catching wild swarms. Every year presents new challenges to his growth, but his perseverance is quite commendable, and his efforts quite rewarding.
In the years to come we expect this to grow into quite the apiary, and are excited to see Nathans efforts and determination become quite the honey pot.
