    Default New from Southeastern Indiana...And need a name!

    Hello! I will be starting my very first (and second) hive(s) this spring! I'm very excited, and their new homes are almost ready. But I think they need a name...you know, in case I want to sell honey and/or other bee products in the future? We live in town, not near any natural features of merit....I want something distinctive and maybe a little unusual. My family is me, my husband, 12 year old son, 6 cats and a turtle. Our last name is Kellerman and my son's initials are AOK. Ideas include AOK Bees, Honeyside Gardens, Cat's Meow Honey... I like the second one, but hubby says it sound like I've killed the honey. Thoughts? Oh, and is there one thing you wish someone would've told you when you were a brand new beekeeper?

    Welcome to Beesource!

    > Our last name is Kellerman

    If you are considering selling honey, plan ahead and choose a name keeping in mind Indiana "labeling" law. I'd choose a name that includes your family name, perhaps Kellerman Honey Farm.

    Here's more on Indiana laws:

    Welcome to the site. I need to pick a name too? I won't use Kellerman since you picked it first and my name isn't Kellerman anyway! lol

    Good luck and do post back with what you decide.
