The honey is made by the bees and I count myself as a middle-man rather than a craftsman. Carol (my wife) branches out into `potions and lotions` using bee products but as yet only in a very small way. We have made candles and will again.
I have small apiaries (no more than half a dozen hives) in four different locations, at home and in the surrounding area. Interestingly the one in Gloucester City is the most productive.
I work full time, so beekeeping is only an enthralling hobby. And a sticky one at times!
I keep bees more for interest than profit, which is just as well. However, a hobby is surely something you enjoy and spend time and money on?
If you find a bee swarm in the early summer do let me know. (07866977359 )
