KENS5 Great Day SA on GBR

Today we were thrilled to finally get to see the Great Day SA segment on one of our local stations (CBS). Eileen was a joy to meet and work with on this and we hope she’ll come back to visit soon! Our video is available for viewing on the GBR Press Page of our website so be sure to stop by and check it out.

Tomorrow is a busy day for us so I’m glad I was able to take the day off from work to accompany Mark to San Antonio. This is a borrowed photo from the JW Marriott website – I wanted to see what to expect when we head out there in the morning. Looks lovely! We met a very nice buyer while at the County Fair booth and she took our sample and card back to her Marriott crew and a few emails and a phone call later, we’re taking our honey samples, gift baskets and our bright, cheery selves to the resort to meet the Executive Chef and the Culinary Gardener for a tour and meeting. If it all works out, maybe you will see or taste some of our honeys in their Cibolo Moon restaurant. And if the garden is right, some of the bees may have very fancy digs to call home soon. We’ll let you know how it goes.

Eileen interviews Mark

Today we had a wonderful visit with Eileen and Andrew from the morning show, Great Day SA, which appears on KENS-5 (CBS). The segment should air sometime in November and we will let you local folks know when the date will be. This would not have been possible without the introduction to Eileen, who has been so nice and easy to work with on this endeavor. Our friend and president of the Alamo Area Beekeepers Association, Bruce, was the one who hooked us up with Eileen so that she could speak with people about the wellbeing of bees, why they are important and what we can do to help them. Sadly, Bruce passed away recently and we were deeply saddened when we found out about it. I thought of him often today and wished he could have been here with us but I know he’s watching from above so he’ll know exactly how we did. 🙂

After filming at the house and a honey tasting session (we couldn’t let them leave without THAT!), we took our guests out to Deadman Creek bee yard and did some more filming with the bees. It was such a beautiful day to be out there and I think they had a nice time. We love that our gentle bees allow for easy filming and photographing. Eileen and Andrew enjoyed the bee suits, as most people do when they visit with us. You don’t really need them, but better safe than sorry, right?

This was a fantastic experience for us and it gave us yet another opportunity to share some information, bust some myths about bees being mean, and make new friends. And if we can reach their viewers and educate them a bit about the bees, then we couldn’t be any happier!
