Success in beekeeping takes passion and commitment. With time and effort your beekeeping business can provide a worthwhile side income. This site outlines ideas that have worked in my sideline business over the years that I hope you find helpful. Thanks for your interest in my blog.

My Sideline Business



My brother and I are third generation beekeepers and manage a 500 hive operation in Northern Utah while both working other full-time jobs. While we play with the bees, my lovely wife and sister-in-law market and sell the honey. Our primary business focus is on honey production and pollination services.

Tidbits about me

My day job – manufacture and test scientific instruments.

Enjoy writing – someday I want to write a book, but a blog is fun for now.

Love country music from the 80’s and 90’s.

My wife is allergic to honeybee stings – our first summer married she was stung seven times in one bee yard followed by a trip to the ER.

Once worked as an extra in a fictional movie about killer bees terrorizing a small town.

I’m a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

Served a two year church mission in Northern England.

Big fan of Apple products – iPhone’s and iPad’s are the coolest devices.

Someday when I have “free time” I hope to resume my hobbies of woodworking, throwing pots, piano and guitar.
