Sourwood, Lovely Sourwood

Such a fickle bloom. It can grow a number of places, but the blooms only produce nectar in the Southern Appalachians. Even then you can really only make honey at  higher elevations, therefore,  the  window is extremely small for available bee yards capable of  making this beautiful honey, which is arguably the best in the…

The Warre Hive

A few months ago, a friend directed me towards a website for a company called Bee Thinking. Aside from one of the coolest names I had heard for a honey bee oriented company, I realized that they were as passionate about their work as I feel that Savannah Bee Company is about our work. This…

The Bee Cause Project

A few years ago during a meeting at Savannah Bee, Ted Dennard the company owner and founder, commented that he would like to place 1000 observation hives in 1000 different schools across the country. Initially, I took this idea to be one of great vision but also completely unrealistic and logistically impossible. One thing that…

Good to be a Beekeeper

Spring officially begins at that meristematic moment when I open a beehive and see fresh drawn combs filling with nectar and pollen. Back-lit honeybees in the early morning sunlight pack frenetic sky-ways with activity as they zoom out of the hive to hidden sources of abundance and then, heavy laden with a full nectar tank…

Absence and the Heart: Savannah Bee Grows Up

As I write, I find myself on the rugged Pacific coast of Mexico. A small town of 2500 people, lots of great food and a constant supply of waves, Las Olas. This small paradise has blue waters and white foam capped walls sweeping in like slow hands on this Pacific clock. I can honestly say…

How Do You Bring a Bee Company to Life? Reflections of 2014

Dang, this year has certainly galloped toward the finish in record time and I’m still yearning for the months to slow down. Nonetheless, I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the Bee Company. It’s the time of year when we have to look over the business and see how we’ve done, plan where we are…

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…
