DR. B’S HONEY
Dr. Bill Lien
Spring City, Pennsylvania
The bees are located at "The Farm," in field 2 at 2440 Pottstown Pike, just north of where it crosses French Creek, in Spring City, PA. He has been keeping bees for four years. Though many of his hives were brought to the property, many wild swarms have since moved into empty boxes and are thriving and producing alongside the non-native hives. In the past five years, the Farm's 52 acres have been gutted of many invasive species and replanted with native grasses, 300 trees, and flowers that the bees now help to pollinate. Dr. Bill learned to keep bees by googling, guessing, and consulting his beekeeping high school classmate Scotty V.  –Kate Lien

CIRCLE HONEY
Rose Loving and Sage Lewis
Turnbridge, Vermont
Our apiary doesn’t really have a name but sometimes we call it Circle Honey [after our street name in Vermont]. However despite the address, we don’t live on a circle but rather we are the last house at the top end of a private driveway on top of a mountain. The hives are located on the side of our mountain meadow at about 1500 ft. elevation nearby to our blueberry bushes, wildflower meadow, hydrangea bushes, and many other flowering plants and shrubs in my mom’s amazing and immaculate gardens. She is an incredible flower and vegetable gardener and the bees have a lot to choose from. Rose Loving has been keeping bees since 2011. Sage [her daughter] has been helping as assistant beekeeper 2015–17.
