About the Company
Jackie Park-Burris is a 2nd generation beekeeper
Jackie Park Burris was born into the Park Beekeeping Family of Northern California. Her Uncle Homer Park, the patriarch of the family, started playing with honeybees in the early 1930’s. He kept his first beehives on the Park Family ranch in Palo Cedro, Ca, where Jackie herself was later raised and currently resides. Homer would go on to become one of the most prolific and influential queen breeders in the country. He later convinced his younger brother Jack Park, Jackie’s father, to start his own bee business in 1963; thus, the Park Family Beekeeping tradition was born.
