Our story begins with an uncle. Like so many people I have spoken with, I too had an uncle that kept bees. I never really saw him in action with his bees, but the idea always intrigued me. Fast forward 30 years, I had just completed my third Ironman triathlon. While walking away from the finish line I told my wife that I am hanging up my triathlon hat. She asked me what I was going to do with all the extra time I was now going to have, I told her I was going to become a beekeeper. After she stopped laughing at me, our journey began. -Mike Peverill
