Since 1995 I have kept bees on a smaller scale than I am today. It’s been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. Today, The Copper Trinity is still a family-owned farm that is growing, and my day-to-day involvement with my farm has grown since losing my job as a journalist.
I scaled back what I was doing on the farm for the last decade because of my job as a journalist and talk show radio host. I felt it was important that I present the middle view of the stories that mattered, allowing the reader and listener to form their own opinions and views. That, however, was to be my undoing as corporate media strives to spoon-feed opinion and misinformation at every turn possible.
Towards the end of my career, I was faced editors who would rewrite my articles to include their own opinions; remove whole sides of articles, like when one editor removed any mention, quotes, and video from an interview I conducted – completely removed the Republican side of the article; and one who conspired with another reporter to stage a fake event to propel a narrative. Sad moments. However, it all ended when I walked away from my radio job and when my remaining contract was cancelled because the media outlet was sold to a new corporation.
It was time to return to my roots.
The Copper Trinity, as the name suggests, produces three types of crops: pecans, honey, and hydroponically grown Strawberries. Our products are GMO-free, and our honey (like our soaps) are both Halal and Kosher.
Over the last few months, I’ve been working on bringing the farm back up to full production. Before this, we were limited in production to honey and some pecans. As I write this, we are working on getting the hydroponic systems (NFT systems) to full capacity.
As you can expect, this is not easy. It is long days of hard work and little return. Much of this is running on hope and a prayer. We have minimal income and no savings as of this point. We hope you will join us in getting this up and running by supporting us.
You can give as little as a dollar or as much as you want by changing the quantity – each ‘unit’ is $1
Alternatively, you can adopt a beehive! Adopting would allow you to name the queen. You’ll receive ten pounds of honey from the hive you adopt, as well as photos and video updates and information about bees and your hive. For that, click here.
Thank you so much for your consideration!
