Stan Moulton started beekeeping in 1995. He is a fourth generation beekeeper. He and his family build the beekeeping equipment, keep bees, extract honey, and sell the honey. He teaches beekeeping classes locally to beginning beekeepers, which focus on sustainable beekeeping. He hosts annual beeswax candle-making workshops and Pysanka egg workshops using the beeswax candles. He also arc welded bees and honeycomb onto the rack of his bee truck and builds hand-carved furniture from beehive boxes. He amazingly combines art with sustainable beekeeping.
He even proposed in bees. He spelled, “Alicia, Marry Me? Stan,” on the driveway in honey and wax on a warm summer day and the bees flocked to the site, spelling the proposal. Alicia said, "Yes!" and they were married in 2007.
