Caring for the Queen: Beekeeper Jesse McCurdy

September 23, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

A Telegraph story about new beekeeping rules in Perry, GA gave me the opportunity to hang out with beekeeper Jesse McCurdy. McCurdy has been a beekeeper for something like 70 years, not counting a hiatus in the 1950s for service in the Navy. McCurdy says Uncle Sam wouldn't let him bring the bees on ship. He was a lot of fun, I learned a lot (which is always great) and it made pretty nice photos, I think. I only got stung three times. Stills and video below.
