Separate names with a comma.

In deference to the Tundra Division, the bee should be dressed in a parka. :thumbsup:
I have to adhere to the Keep It Simple Stoopid (KISS) principle so that I can remember things. I live next to Hornsby Hollow Campground and recreation area. Honey starts with H. So I think I'll call it Hornsby Hollow Honey. I can handle up to 3 H's. (another H and it might get confused with the 4-H club).
my pick of names was fairly simple.
first I wanted a name short enough to fit on the label I attach to a mason jar lid. I am ET to a lot my friends and they were my bees so ETzzzBzzz became my label name.
New to this myself and haven't decided on a name yet. First letter of my last name and my Partner's last name is the same "B". So, kinda thinking along those lines with names like "BB's Honey", or "B&B's Bee Honey"
not very original i know. also he's my Pastor, so maybe we could use that somehow?
2 Bzzzzzz Honey
Two Bees Honey
Sinfully Good honey
Sinfully Sweet Honey
Nectar from Heaven Apiairy
I am in a conundrum about choosing a name. My last name is Cruser, so naturally I thought of Cruser's Honey Farm or Cruser Family Honey Farm. I was sold on the idea until I started rethinking it. I live in a rural county that it known for its covered bridges (over 20), we even have a festival here called the "Parke County Covered Bridge Festival" that is attended by millions of people for one week in October. I think Covered Bridge Honey Farm would be more appealing than Cruser's/Cruser Family Honey Farm, plus if I had a website, it would pop up in searches for "covered bridge...."
What do you think? I am looking for any input here, please
Sounds real good to me. :thumbsup:
Up in New Brunswick (next to Nova Scotia) there are covered bridges that attract visitors as well.
I like the covered bridge name, especially when you have a festival in your area for it. Sounds like a good marketing strategy. You could even change up the pics on the jar labels featuring different bridges.
I'm at a loss on this myself
Me too, if it ever comes to that point.
How about pastorized honey? :rolling:
ef that's a goodun for sure :lol::lol:
We get raw milk and i always tell people that it's only pasturized in the summer. The typica response is "the heat pasturizes it?" No, the cows are grazing on pasture.
Zulu Bees here, also easy,
Some know the story, I was transferred from South Africa to the states , and the guys I was working with xpected a black guy, so I called myself Zulu.... Been Zulu on every forum I frequent.
I have an artist working on a bee with a Zulu Shield and spear for my logo, should bee ready for this harvest.
My Boy Scout project was also easy , Scoutbee 107 , the number being the troop number.
Since I'm just getting started, My apiary is still called "the backyard"
sounds good too!!
I finally settled on "Sun Bear Apiary" for myself. Hence the new avatar. I had a short list of potential names, and most people liked this one (even if it wasn't my favorite at first). I also think it has great logo potential; Sun Bears are one of the funkiest-looking bears out there.
A Sun Bear is also known as the Malaysian Honey Bear. Also when I was a Zookeeper years ago, one of my favorite animals I cared for was a Sun Bear by the name of "Buckwheat". So I personally have the buckwheat=honey association going on. I can attest that she really did love honey.
Anyway, I really do think it's a good idea to bounce potential names off of other people. What sounds good to you might have different connotations to others, and vice-versa.
ps- I should probably go ahead and change my name on the forum as well; it's dumb, but I started using it a long time ago. I'll probably keep it for now for continuity.
Congrats on your choice of a name and new avatar. :thumbsup: Hope it leads you to a long and successful honey production career.
Can we change our forum name?
In that case, I would like to change mine to "Good Looking".
Naw, nobody would believe it!
Good idea. Glad to do it for you.... :rolling: :rolling: :rolling:
