What does raising chickens, Scottish Cattle, making mead, a masters in computer science, being a RN, an author, an educator and the buzz of bees all have in common? Rick Green! But what is Rick the most passionate about? The mystery and magic of bees!

So where does Ricks Story begin?

His family ran a bar/restaurant in Upstate New York, one winter a tree fell and customers were amazed at the bees alive, crawling on the snow, and the honey all over…hum…honeybees living in the winter…this fact sparked his curiosity and he started with two hives, then four and it grew to over 140 hives.

Over the past 40 years, Rick has given over 500 bee seminars and has written a book, with another book in the works. He will be giving a presentation in our store this summer. Date and time yet to be announced.
