Like many seventh grade boys involved in after school and extracurricular activities, Westminster honor roll student Gray Miller is busy as a bee. Well, to be accurate, Gray is busy with his bees. While he enjoys playing soccer, fishing and hunting, Gray has one very unique hobby – he is a Bee Keeper.
In the two short years since Gray started bee keeping with his grandmother, his honey has won awards and he is now even turning his interest into a business as he sells honey and other bee products.
At the Georgia Honey Show in Callaway Gardens Gray’s honey received second place, and at the 2010 Madison County Fair his dark honey nabbed first place while his light honey was awarded third place.
A member of the Oglethorpe County Bee Club and occasionally attending the Piedmont Bee Club, Gray is serious about his bee keeping. He took continuing education classes in September, and with only the written portion remaining to pass before he becomes a certified bee keeper, Gray already passed the physical part of the certifcation exam.
Interested in indulging in some award-winning honey? Gray sells his sweet honey for $10 a pint and $12 for comb honey. To purchase some, you may contact his mother at email@example.com.
