An Interview With Ted Dennard From Savannah Bee Company

Saturday, June 30th, 2012

The Savannah Bee Company is one of the most amazing ‘corporate stories’ you will ever hear. From a lone man’s interest in beekeeping came a company that now has a warehouse, beautiful store locations and over fifty employees.

Ted Dennard is the creator behind this successful enterprise. Beginning in 2002, this company came into being because Ted devoted his life to a ‘relationship’ with honeybees. In his terminology, the company has grown into a mega-hive, requiring more and more workers to tend to her needs.

For a man who studied religion and philosophy at Sewanee, it was his passion for honeybees and honey that brought him to where he is now. He actually sees the ‘hand of God’ in these small creatures – these most benevolent of all beings. He has stated that:

“Honeybees live a poetic life of Midas, where all they touch is benefited. They have created a place on this Earth that is the most admirable of the species. The song they sing each day, and have been singing for 150 million years, is a harvesting of the collected sunshine that gives us life. Their symbiotic partnership with the plant world is the reason our world looks the way it does with all of its flowering plants.”

And this is true. Without honeybees, in fact, our world would be in a serious state of duress, mainly because most people do not understand the ‘gifts’ that these tiny beings give to them.

It was with great pleasure that we were able to see the inner workings of Ted’s business, and to sit down with the man who has a true and utter passion for something that many of us do not even think about – except when it comes to the fear of getting stung. But being able to learn something from a ‘professional’ and ‘learned man’ in the beekeeping industry has changed my mind completely about honeybees. In fact, with the greater knowledge came a kind of awe and inspiration.

So head with me into a world that you, most likely, don’t know anything about, and find out everything there is to know about the Savannah Bee Company.


“See him wiggling?” Ted Dennard says as he points into the hive. “They do a circle – a tangent line – and how much they wiggle is actually a sign of how strong the nectar source is. Honeybees map out where they need to fly in order to get to these high-nectar sources.”

The King & Prince Resort Serves up the Perfect Addition to the Finest Cuisine!


After speaking about the King and Prince Resort located on the stunning island of St. Simons off the coast of Georgia, we have all come know that for the ‘best of the best’ there is no other place in the world to stay when ‘pampering’ is the order of the day. Not only are the accommodations magnificent, offering guests every single thing they could possibly wish for and more, but they also have the ‘5-Star’ dining that makes the mouth water just reading about it on their website. Savory is the only adjective to be used when it comes to the unmatched cuisine served inside and out at the King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort.

With relaxed southern hospitality, comes the dining experience of a lifetime. While sitting just steps away from the Atlantic Ocean, the King’s Tavern offers the only ocean front dining on St. Simons Island. The King and Prince historic Delegal Dining Room, with its magnificent stained glass window murals and ocean vistas, offers everything from the Southern Charm Sunday Brunch to the Legendary Friday Night Seafood Buffet. And the Ocean Terrace Grille offers the ultimate in casual dining.

For perfect locations you need the perfect menu, and the King and Prince is known to ONLY provide the best dishes at every meal, and now they serve the most unforgettable ingredient that makes any food or recipe even more delicious

The Savannah Bee Company redefines honey, and their delicious lines – from the ‘everyday’ to the ‘varietal’ honey products – offer the sweetness and flavor profile that makes the King and Prince dining even more unforgettable, as it is the perfect seasoning to be offered on that perfectly set table.

Luscious, flavorful – Savannah Bee Company honey is a ‘line’ full of delights from Grill Honey, Cheese Honey, and Tea Honey to an endless line that adds distinctive flavor to a marinade; a smoky sweetness for basting and grilling; and the perfect partner to make that wild salmon come to life. The honey flavors can tame the tang or complement the salty and instantly upgrade any meal, while still being the perfect sweetener for spicy Chai, aromatic Green Earl Grey, or a bold mug of Irish Breakfast tea.

Honey is like a fine wine…

The King and Prince Resort is the pinnacle of excellence…

The combination of the two makes for the most incredible vacation of a lifetime.

Until Next Time, Everybody!
