Hometown Honey (Based out of Kennesaw Ga)
“Hello, my name is Brian Higgins and my wifes name is Lori Higgins. We have been beekeepers since 1992, and it’s a funny story of how we became involved with bees. We live on an acre lot in a subdivision. Coming from a farmer family background, of course, it was important to us to have fruit trees and gardens, but there was a problem…No fruits and no vegetables would grow on our property!
Thinking it’s my soil (red clay). I gave the county agricultural department a call to see if they could help me. They told me it’s not the soil. The problem is the lack of wild honeybees. So I decided to buy a hive and have honeybees in my yard and hoped to have fruits and vegetables. And I did! So did the neighbors!!
I started to make my own hive boxes and before I knew it I was up to ten hives. My honey was in such demand that I had to keep growing!I Now have 5 bee yards there are in Kennesaw, Acworth, Woodstock, Marietta, and Cartersville. We have been active members of the Georgia State Beekeepers Association since 1995 and support UGA’S bee research lab.”
