What’s buzzing in McGregor and Marquette? Brooks enjoys beekeeping hobby


McGregor resident Joe Brooks currently has four honey bee hives—three in McGregor between his and his daughter’s backyards, as well as one at a friend’s home in Marquette. Once established, the bees are largely self sufficient. “Bees are happy to make honey, to forage and gather. You put them in the hive and they do their own thing,” said Joe.

Frames hold the honeycomb in the beehives. Honey can be harvested from a box, which is about 10 frames, in the middle of July.

“It’s estimated a bee has to visit 1,000 flowers to make up what it brings to the hive, and it takes 30 bees to make up a teaspoon of honey,” Joe explained. “It’s a lot of work, but there are a lot of bees to do it.”

Each of Joe’s hives currently contains around 100,000 honey bees. Just a small number of them can be seen outside at one time, however.

What makes the décor unique is where it is sourced and how. According to Becky, the pieces will almost exclusively come from countries that have fair trade business practices and pay their employees a fair and living wage. That includes Haiti, India, Turkey, Kenya and Senegal. Some items will also come from small business owners in the United States. (Photo courtesy of Styled Abode)
