Meet the bEEKEEPERS
A scientist and engineer by training, Kim met Howard at a market in 2007 and has been working for Nalo Meli ever since. She learned beekeeping on the job .
She is proud to continue the tradition of Nalo Meli Honey, by working with new apprentices and teaching beekeeping to the next generation.
What keeps it interesting is never knowing what the next honey harvest will taste like, or how a hive will respond to a new and challenging location.
She loves connecting with customers and hearing where her honey ends up in the world.
Howard was an electrical engineer when he responded to a call in the paper for a beekeeper in 2005. He quickly became known as the Beeman, and is known for his generosity, his messy car, and his general love for bees.
Howard passed away in Florida on June 15, 2017. Here is his obituary:
