Candace Douylliez has been keeping bees for over a decade. Five years into it, she ran into a problem.
“There was nothing for the bees to eat,” she says.
Douylliez—who has tended up to 200 hives—had been keeping her bees on her own property in Central Florida, but she needed better forage for her bees, specifically the Gallberry, Palmetto, and Pine that make for delicious honey. She also needed more space.
“We live in a planned urban development, and we couldn’t have the bees there. They were getting in people’s swimming pools,” she says. “We had to move off our personal property. That’s what made us look into licensing with Rayonier.”
Douylliez and her husband, Timmy, found a 1,400-acre tract of Rayonier land near Hampton, Florida, and set up their permanently placed hives on about ¼ acre. They share the land with hunters, who also license from Rayonier.
“It’s a great area to raise bees because it’s all natural,” she says.
The tract is close to her home and offers the variety of forage that makes for a great-tasting product. And that’s important for Douylliez, who is known locally as the honey lady.
Rayonier Beekeeping continues to expand operations throughout the southeast and northwest U.S. Even with high demand snapping up bee licenses, we currently have land available for bees.
