Hobby turns into job for beekeeper

The Estes family apiary is hidden on the back roads of Itawamba county, near Evergreen. Justin Estes strains and pots all the honey on site. By the end of the season, he expects to collect about 1,000 gallons.

 He sets up once a month at the Tupelo Flea Market. He also sells five-frame nucleus hives and single and double hives for anyone looking to start their own bee yard.
