James.

James became a beekeeper because of his enthusiasm for the honey bee. He has always enjoyed observing bees leave their hive to forage and return with pollen attached to their hind legs. James has been beekeeping for sixty years and despite many setbacks, including having all of his beehives stolen at one point which forced him to start from scratch — He continues to raise queen bees and manage many beehives at his home. James also helps to mentor local amateur beekeepers and since there are more beekeepers today than ever before, he stays quite busy helping others. I asked James what advice can he give to people interested in becoming beekeepers and simply put, he replied 'don't give up'.
