White House Has First Honey Harvest

Photo of White House bees


Charlie Brandts, a White House carpenter as well as beekeeper, is shown here collecting the first batch of honey from the beehives on the South Lawn of the White House. The White House chefs have said they are looking forward to using produce from the White House garden and the honey made by the official White House bees. We know absolutely nothing about beekeeping, other than what we gleaned from the indie film, Ulee's Gold, but we think the fact that Charlie isn't wearing gloves means he is very experienced at beekeeping (novices always have to wear gloves). In any event, we wouldn't get near a beehive without a full hazmat suit.
