About Me . . .
My name is Dave Pearce and I've been a beekeeper since around 2009. I struggled a bit in my first couple of seasons because I tried to go it alone. Once I began connecting with other beekeepers I really grew a lot and learned from their experiences and advice.
In 2015 I began my beekeeping business, Local Buzz Bees and Honey. Since then I have built my business around providing honeybees to customers throughout southeast Michigan, selling honey, rescuing and relocating honeybees and teaching a beekeeping school.
I keep around 30 to 50 hives and find that that is plenty for now. It allows me to earn some income through honey sales yet allows me time to teach and rescue honeybees from structures like houses, garages, trailers or any other structure on people's properties.
