Stung by the beekeeping bug in Afton


Back in 2010, Afton resident Gregg Lauderdale was looking for something to keep his free time occupied.

“I was looking for a hobby,” he said. “I wanted something that wasn’t too time intensive and something that I could do to give back and be worthwhile.”

He found one “sweet” hobby in the form of beekeeping and honey production.

Lauderdale, who works as a training director for sports camps around the country, launched G’s Bees Honey in 2011.
