OFI 1400: Starting Your Bee Business (Replay Of Episode #245) | FFA SAE Edition | Saralynn Smith | Dinwiddie High School FFA Copy
On tomorrow's ag business episode we are talking all about bees with a fascinating entrepreneur who has traveled the world. I thought that a look back at this great interview with Saralynn Smith would be a great idea as she talked to us about the very beginning stages of starting her bee business.
Below are the original show notes:
If You Want To Raise Bees, You Will Need The Right Clothing!
Sara Smith is involved in one of the most ancient of agricultural enterprises, bee keeping. Her story is kind of unique. Instead of developing her bee hives with the purpose of harvesting honey or selling products, she and her father started them to pollinate the plants and flowers in their yard.
Soon, they had 3 hives and excess honey! After giving honey away to people in their community, the idea of "3 B's" came up. Sara decided to make the beekeeping her supervised agricultural experience. Now she will be producing lip balm from her honey with all natural ingredients.
