with Jacob Werner, Beekeeper
One day, I decided I was done working inside.
Today, Dr. Rob Downey speaks with Jacob Werner, the head beekeeper at Stoked Beekeeping Co. in Homer, Alaska. Stoked is a family run beekeeping company, which started in 2015 with just a single beehive. They now operate close to 150 beehives among south central Alaska’s pristine subalpine meadows. Today they talk about the health benefits of bee products- not limited to honey.
