As many of you who follow this blog know, I am a big fan of Don Kuchenmeister, the FatBeeMan from Lula, Ga. Not only do we love what he does with his bees, but we also love that he shares his wealth of knowledge on Youtube on his channel. In what has become an annual tradition, my daughter and I travel to his home every season to buy some of his bees to sell to a very lucky few here in the DC area. Indeed, we are so enamored with his girls that we were able to get the Smithsonian to restock their hive in the Natural History Museum with his bees.
Don specializes in small-cell bees and raises them treatment-free on foundation he makes himself. Don makes almost everything he uses for bee raising himself, which includes milling raw timber into lumber for boxes.
Were we ever surprised, and thrilled, when in his latest video he gave us a shout out! Here is the video, below:
THANKS DON! See you in a couple months!
