  3. Beekeeping goes hand-in-hand with gardening.
  4. It’s a great, all-family activity and provides educational incentives for the kids.

And perhaps more so than any of the above-mentioned benefits, beekeeping is fun. It’s a great after-work activity, and is suitable for the whole family.

It can serve as a conversation piece around town, with family and friends, and will provide you with an on-going supply of delicious, local organic honey….straight from the hive!
