Fall From A Beekeeper’s Perspective.

Today we mowed in our flower garden that was full of Zinnias. It is tough to destroy the hold-out flowers and the upcoming buds that have been hanging on and blooming on a mostly dried up plant. So we did one last picking of the flowers before the mowers arrived. I now have a big…

Savannah Bee Honey

In today’s world it seems that trust in food has been lost and for many good reasons. As the saying goes, “you trust your mother but you still cut the cards”. And that is the approach that we take here at Savannah Bee Company. In the beginning I worked my hives, produced all the honey…

The Labor of Honey Bees

“The bee is more honored than other animals, not because she labors, but because she labors for others” – Saint John Chrysostom – (archbishop of Constantinople, 347-407)   Honeybees work hard, which ultimately ends up bee-ing good for all of us! One beehive will make 500,000,000 visits to flowers in the course of one year,…

Gold Reserve Tupelo Honey

Hi and thanks for taking a moment to learn more about the Gold Reserve Tupelo honey. Basically I’ve been making Tupelo honey for around 17 years and for whatever reason the honeybee or the Tupelo angels shined on one of the bee yards last year. What makes it so special? Never have I seen the…

Lighting A Bee Smoker

Inspiration is needed to light or reignite the Soul. Inspiration- from Latin inspirare- literally “to breathe in”   I’m running down the road huffing, trying to maintain a regular breath. Summer officially begins in a few days and starts a new Season. I’m full to the brim, overflowing with work and family. I feel like…

Land Beyond the Sea

Land Beyond the Sea   It is a fantastic place filled with treasures, pleasures and dreams.  This place is where your wispy life’s aspirations live before you make them incarnate.  They reside over the horizon, and you have to believe in them so much that you will risk everything to find them.  This is when…

Surfing

I was raised right on the beach. Our house on St. Simons Island sat at the back of the dunes and I lived in the salt water. Like fish, swimming, floating, body surfing, me and my gang of friends would find scraps of plywood and bend them into rideable sizes. The frayed edges were a…

Foulness in the Bee Yard

What is that STANK! Nope, it’s not foul-brood and your hive is as likely as not to be healthy. This time of year the roadsides light up with yellow as goldenrod blooms. These flowers provide a nectar source for the bees in the Fall period of the year but it comes with its cost –…

A Beekeepers View on Spring

It has been a cold winter and I am cranky. I can’t remember an unrelenting cold like the one we’ve had this year. I bet our beehives are mad too. Having kept bees for more than 30 years, there’s always a nagging worry about their well-being during the winter. We are pretty spoiled with warm…
