I have been beekeeping since May 2006. Since that time I have increased my apiary from two to 18 hives. Most of my hives are maintained year round right here in Cherry Hill, New Jersey in a secret location. I have been the President of the South Jersey Branch from 2007 through 2011. Additionally I became President of the New Jersey Beekeepers' Association from 2010 through 2012. NJBA and it's affiliated branches now exceed 1000 family members in the New Jersey Beekeepers Association.
Please enjoy interviews with the National and local media outlets:
The honeybee is one of those rare creatures that makes the world a better place to live. They make the word more productive by their pollination skills. They are a "green" machine.
Keeping bees is a humbling experience. Beehives are a diverse collaboration of group effort. They exist to perpetuate their species and in doing so pollinate the world's fruits and vegetables. Worker bees may only live a few weeks, but perform any needed function until the need is satisfied. This includes rearing brood, removing waste, storing pollen and nectar and even fighting invaders to name some of the chores bees perform on a daily basis. Every single bee lives for the pleasure of the queen bee, pictured on my home page. Every bee has a specific job that changes on demand as needs are prioritized by the queen.
