About

2010: my dad was turning 65 and was ready to retire. With all that extra time on his hands, we needed to find him a gift that could also function as a hobby. Someone suggested getting him a beehive. This was a completely unexpected idea...we knew nothing about beekeeping! So we purchased "Beekeeping for Dummies" and a small hive, and he was hooked! We soon discovered that our 10 year old son had just as much passion for beekeeping as his grandpa, so grandpa went out and bought a second hive for his 11th birthday. At first we gave honey away to our friends as gifts. When the demand exceeded supply, we knew it was time to expand. We chose a name which reflects where our honey comes from...our hometown of Richmond sits on Lulu Island, originally named after a local actress from the mid-1900's. Today we have 10 hives and the harvesting of honey is done by my parents and their two eager grandkids.
