In the Bee Business

We visited Jeremy Bemis on his family’s tree farm near the southern Pulaski County town of Wrightsville. A brief venture into growing pumpkins and Christmas trees led to development of Bemis Honeybee Farm, which Jeremy and his wife Emily operate. Established in 2012 the bee farm now features one of the largest stores for beekeeping equipment in the state and it has become a destination for beekeepers across Arkansas and neighboring states.
