After 20 years of military service, James McWilliams longed for a peaceful family-focused lifestyle. Since both he and his son, Garrett, had worked with bees in their youth, they figured a family bee business might suit them.
On 5 acres of land in Stafford, VA, they run Honeycomb Heroes, following organic practices in the operation of their hives. They sell raw honey and 100% natural beeswax. Regular consumption of their locally produced honey helps people adapt to the local pollen and minimize the discomfort of seasonal allergies.
In addition to producing high quality bee products, the McWilliams are eager to support a thriving bee population because of their essential contribution to our food supply.
