Hob’bee’ist’s career takes off
DIXON – Father and son Jim and Zak Heintzelman began beekeeping as a hobby 3 years ago. A friend of Zak’s ordered a beginner's kit online, and that was all it took to pique his interest. “I decided it would be interesting to try,” the 25-year-old said. “That was 20 hives ago!” his dad said.
