Photographs by Jennifer HauckStory by Liz Sauchelli Saturday, October 01, 2016 When Troy Hall started beekeeping in 2005, it was a hobby. Thats all I ever thought it could be, said the Plainfield resident. In the over 10 years since, Hall has grown his initial hobby to a full-time vocation called Hall Apiaries, finding a niche among beekeepers in New England and nationally by raising queen bees and selling unprocessed, preservative free honey to area restaurants and food co-ops. vocationI was just intrigued by bees themselves, Hall said. What is it that causes someone to open a box of bees? Hall was mentored by area beekeepers, some of whom run commercial enterprises. From what I saw of these, I could see myself doing the same thing, he said. He began crafting a five-year plan to make the business viable, re-evaluating at the end of every year. There were leaner times, but Hall knew that if he could get through those, in the long term the business could be successful. One part of that process was learning to breed queens, which very few beekeepers do: Usually beekeepers purchase queens from others who breed them. Theres a big chunk of the world of bees that I was ignorant about until I started raising queens, Hall said. I became a better beekeeper.
