When Xander and Samantha met several years
ago, the thought they’d end up owning and running a winery in
Carnation, Washington, was not even a germ of an idea. In fact, the
thought that they’d be running 15 colonies and producing honey at
that winery was even further from consideration as Xander had no
love of flying, stinging insects. Flash forward to today, past
Xander’s nearly three years in the Peace Corps, where he taught
beekeeping in The Gambia, Africa, and they now own Orenda
Winery. 

In this special ‘on the road’ podcast, Jeff travels to
Carnation, east of Seattle, to talk with Xander and Samantha about
beekeeping in Africa, what prompted them to buy a winery, and how
they use their honey bees as a major piece in their overall
business plan.

Kim joins the podcast later as he preps for Apimondia
2019.
