11-8-16 – We are tickled to be talking with Michael Jordan, the Bee Whisperer tonight on GotMead Live. Michael has traveled the world to learn beekeeping, from Turkey and India, From Poland to Ireland. He was also asked to join a team to teach orphans around the world beekeeping and to do classes at the University of Wyoming’s Bee College. He has 173 hives that he manages now, and is getting around 5000 lbs of honey out of them (that is a TON of honey!!).

Michael is also working on creating the Underground Meadery, and is on his way to having a commercial meadery very soon!

Join us to talk with Michael about his beekeeping, his journey to become a commercial meadmaker, and his conversation on making mead!
