Next stop, Ted Dennard’s humble bumble bee business baby, the Savannah Bee Company. Dennard serves as the founder, president, and head beekeeper of Savannah Bee Company, a business started officially in 2008 but with experience beginning as far back as 1999. Located on Broughton Street in charming downtown Savannah, this bee stop strives to share important bee education and products! Your group will learn how to start a hive, avoid pesticides, plant diverse flowering species, and support local beekeepers. You will also learn how honey is made, from the beginning bright sunlight to the Tupelo, orange, and Sourwood trees that provide honey making nectar to the local bees.
Ted Dennard is truly passionate about sharing the world of bees with others, a delicious passion easily seen in their specialty honey, a culmination of a 35 year search for the world’s best honey. The beauty products provided have helpful hive-driven body benefits, made with the finest beeswax, royal jelly, propolis, and honey. Try the Tupelo, wildflower, orange, sourwood, or acacia honey, or perhaps even the unique winter white honey made from Idaho wildflowers. You can purchase tea honey, cheese honey, grill honey, Savannah wildflower honey, or even charity driven Bee Cause Honey. In the store you will find all of these honey products plus body products such as body butter, hand cream, lip balms, shampoos, hand soap, and body wash! This is a fantastic opportunity to learn all about the importance of bees, the benefits of honey, and to stock up on all your essential honey-related products!
