Seven years ago, Hannah Burgess revamped her family's legacy honey production and distribution business, creating The Beekeeper's Daughter.
"Beekeeping has been in my family for quite a few generations now. My grandfather made us commercial in the early 50’s and now my father runs it, so we’ve been keeping bees for a long time. At the time, we only sold our honey to bigger companies and we only did private labels. We would keep a little bit of honey on the farm for people to purchase, but it wasn’t much," says Burgess.
