There’s no better time than the new year to explore new interests. This month, why not give beekeeping a try? Hani Honey Company, which has a storefront and café in downtown Stuart, recently launched beekeeping and hive maintenance lessons for burgeoning beekeepers. Assuming you have your own bees and gear, the instructors will come to you. Locals with no bees to call their own can attend a session at one of Hani Honey’s
apiaries in Martin County. In other exciting news, Chris and Jennifer Holmes, the brains behind Hani, also recently launched a meadery, where they make their own mead—an alcoholic tipple that’s fermented with honey instead of grapes, also known as
“honey wine”—earning them a spot on the Treasure Coast Wine & Ale Trail. Theirs is the first meadery in Martin County. $75/one-hour beekeeping lesson
