Your Host

Hilary Kearney Hilary Kearney
Local Beekeeping Expert

Hilary Kearney fell in love with bees by chance. During her final year as a studio art major, Hilary bought a beginners’ beekeeping book for a friend, but ended up reading it herself. That led to a gardening group, teaching a beekeeping class, and starting Girl Next Door Honey: a business that sells raw, local honey (when it’s in season), offers beekeeping workshops, and even performs live bee removals.
