Dan Scales

Dan Scales started Beekeeping at age 13. His dad bought him unassembled bee equipment from Sears and Roebuck. Along with the help of a beekeeping mentor, Dan acquired 7 colonies. He kept those hives for 3 years, but had to leave them behind when his family moved out of state. Dan got back into beekeeping in 2003 and has been pursuing his passion for honeybees ever since. He was president of the Coweta Beekeepers Association from 2016-2018. Dan passed the Master Beekeeper Exam in 2018 through the Alabama Master Beekeeping program. He and his wife, Dora, now own and operate a bee equipment supply store called Sweet Kingdom, LLC. in Newnan, GA. They also maintain more than 100 colonies. Dan enjoys teaching and mentoring children, as well as adults, about the importance of honeybees in our lives.
