Jesse Jensen is a beekeeper at Greene’s Honey Farm in Edmore. He’s been a beekeeper for nine years, and when he’s not working the bees, he’s taking care of his own hives at home. He, his wife Lauren, and their son Hoyt also love taking Ranger rides, watching Hoyt play in the sprinkler, and swimming and boating at Higgins Lake.

Listen as Jesse talks about:

  • The full-time job of beekeeping, including feeding, treating, and taking care of the bees
  • Hunting, snowmobiling, and the best day of the year
  • The year timeline of shipping bees around the country
  • How taking care of bees is like milking cows – they don’t wait for you to have time for them
  • The biggest bee problem right now
