If you are anything like us, we are experiencing a bit of Spring Fever here at Painted Prairie.

Dan, the owner of Love 4 Bees began beekeeping in 2015 as a hobby with one beehive in his backyard. The initial goal of this first hive, was to buy a beehive and have a personal honey source. That quickly evolved into selling other beekeepers’ honey to his friends and associates. Since then, he has discovered the benefits of raw unfiltered honey was for people who suffered from pollen allergies. Now selling honey, bees wax and honeycombs to customers in and around Thornton.
