Our Life, Our Family & Our Future:)

In the summer of 2002, a small swarm of honeybees chose our backyard as their new home. Despite growing up as the son of a commercial beekeeper,

I had no equipment, a screaming protective wife, 2 small children and a pet.  I decided to kill the swarm with a can of Raid. With remorse from killing the colony,

I purchased the basic-necessities to manage a hive of bees then contacted the local Fire & Police Departments.

Two days later we started receiving frantic phone calls and Wessels Family Honey was born!
