Hey, I'm Dorg
Don't bug me!

What's the buzz about this website?
If you spend a wee bit of bee-time here you’ll learn some interesting honey-bee facts along with an endless list of apiary mismanagement techniques to avoid, mixed in with the occasional funny story. If it’s honey you’re after you’ll be interested to know it takes the lifetime of twelve worker bees to produce just one tea spoon of the delicious sweet golden elixir. Another way of looking at it is 30,000 bees have to travel a total of 27,500 miles and visit more than a million flowers to produce half a pound of honey. We sell one and two-pound jars. Just think the two-pound jars require four million flower landings. That’s why you can’t bug the bees – they’re busy.
See what I have been up too lately!
