As a teenager, Blake Briscoe developed an unwavering fascination with bees. It all started on their family ranch in South Texas when he, with the assistance of his father, began to raise bees. The mesmerizing dance of these industrious insects captivated his heart, igniting a lifelong passion. Together, father and son tended to their hives, and their mother substituted sugar with honey as she cooked for the family.
