My name is Brent, aka Shaggy, and I am the beekeeper. I live in Alamosa, CO with my family and devote my full time to taking care of his 600 or so colonies of bees.  I am a sixth generation beekeeper and a fourth generation domestic beekeer.  I currently have about 500 beehives and often wonder how my recent ancestors were able to manage such large numbers of hives. Times change and as we all know now, bigger isn't always better. I am able to watch over the bees and produce several rare raw honeys, and in honor of my great grandpa, grandpa we call them Grampa's Gourmet.
