Video: The Life of a Beekeeper

Why would anyone want to become a beekeeper? Your back will probably hurt; you will overheat; and you will surely suffer some bee stings. Yet, beekeepers have been at it for thousands of years. Local beekeeper Joe Hurley will discuss the attraction of honey bees and relate some of his beekeeping experiences.

Joe Hurley is owner of Kettle Ridge Farm in Victor NY and has been a beekeeper for over 10 years. Besides its wildflower honey, the farm produces maple syrup and offers tours and farm-to-table events throughout the year. Prior to starting Kettle Ridge Farm, Joe spent 30 years as a tax expert and best-selling author.
