Jackson Beekeeper Specializes In Education And Local Product

What started as a hobby has turned into a ever-growing career for one Jackson County beekeeper.

Kamon Reynolds said that his business produces both physical products as well as information to help the beekeeping community.

“We produce pure honey here in Jackson County and some of the neighboring counties,” Reynolds said. “We also have produced soaps and lip balms and other different things, but primarily we produce education these days where we reach hundreds of thousands of beekeepers through our YouTube channel and through conferences and through other literature.”

While he primarily focuses on the educational aspect right now, Reynolds said that he’s looking to expanding his product’s availability. He said that his product is currently available at some Cookeville farmer’s markets, and will soon be available at Broast Tennessee Coffee Roasters.

Reynolds said that the biggest game-changer for him was learning the biological aspect of the bees.

“It’s been quite a journey,” Reynolds said. “Focusing on a lot of the new pests that have come to the honey bee and just never stop learning and never giving up. That’s actually the secret sauce right there is just never saying ‘I want to quit.’”

Reynolds said that one thing people should know when it comes to honey, is to buy local. He said many times store-brand honey can be anything from brown rice syrup or high-fructose corn syrup mixed with honey.
