Hi, my name is Curtis, and 1000 Islands Honey had its humble beginnings in the summer of 2010 with a single colony of bees. My interest started a few years earlier, after moving to a rural area and noticing my neighbour outside one day in a strange white suit with hood. I assumed it was a painters suit and he was maybe painting a fence out in the back. The next time I saw him, he was carrying a smoking tin can. I asked him what was going on, and I was introduced to the wonderful world of beekeeping.
