Burt Beebe always had an interest in beehives and how bees create their honey and so he began beekeeping as a hobby in 2016. Being a culinary teacher at GST-BOCES it seemed like a doable adventure. It didn’t take long for him to have a larger vision of what he and his wife could accomplish with his “hobby”. What started out as a couple of bee hives began to grow until by 2020 it’s expanded to 3 bee yards, approximately 30 hives, and only a clear vision ahead.
The goal has been risen from just selling honey to other services:
Burt’s vision isn’t complete. The next step in the future of HoneyBeeMade will be the addition of tours to watch how bees make honey and to see the extraction process.
