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 Beekeeper’s 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…

Showroom Tours

What a busy couple weeks it has been here at the showroom! Many classes are starting their last month or two of school and with that we have found comes the ever popular “Bug and Insect Week”. My favorite part about the showroom is having tour groups come in and have us talk about how…

Raised Doughnut & Lemon Bismark French Toast

Recipe by Ross Sveback: Okay, I admit it – raised doughnuts are something I have to control. I do not make them Raised Doughnut & Lemon Bismark French Toast because I know that I cannot stop myself from eating them all. I even avoid that section of the supermarket (sometimes…) in an effort to contain…

Growing Up With Honeybees

Well, you might say that I love honeybees. I have basically grown up with them.  Now my adulthood has turned into a full-time job working with, and sometimes speaking for, honeybees. You see, honeybees do only good.  They benefit that from which they take, and they have a very wide ripple effect of positive influence…
