Bee Kept

About Adam Martin

Adam and Leslie Martin are the proud owners of Bee Kept which is located on their homestead in Southern Middle Tennessee. Starting their homestead in January 2019, bees were one of the first things on the to-do list because they love honey!

Their bee adventure, like most others, started out using all of the traditional methods taught and promoted by beekeepers and bee clubs all over America and the Western world. After failing miserably in their first season of beekeeping, they used these failures as opportunities to learn outside-of-the-bee-box thinking with their beekeeping methods.

They learned God’s Creative Intelligent Design for bees and more natural and sustainable beekeeping practices. The rest is history! Since then their bees have enjoyed great success in overwintering without feeding or treating and they have naturally begun to share what they have learned with others. Adam loves teaching others about bees almost as much as he loves the bees.

He also loves peanut butter and honey sandwiches, honey in his coffee, Freedom and Liberty and he will unashamedly tell you! Adam teaches classes at his apiary regularly and is educating many folks on natural and sustainable beekeeping methods. If you have tried keeping bees and failed, or if you are just learning and wanting to get into it, Adam will inspire you to get going! Adam teaches anyone can learn how to trap feral bees, keep them in a low to no maintenance method, and manage the colonies in horizontal hives that are better for the bees and the beekeeper!
