World's Youngest Bitcoin Entrepreneurs: Honeybees and Bitcoin
« on: September 06, 2013, 07:38:21 am »

We (Austin and Beccy Craig) are newlyweds living the first 90 days of our marriage using bitcoin. Our experiences will be featured in an upcoming documentary film: Life On Bitcoin. http://www.lifeonbitcoin.com

We had the opportunity to visit the Bees Brothers http://www.beesbros.com/ both at their home and their commercial production kitchen. The Bees Brothers are Nathan (14), Sam (13), Ben (10) and Rachel (9). Rachel wants to change the name of the business, since she started helping :).

The Bees Brothers run a small family beekeeping business in Logan, Utah selling honey products they harvest and manufacture themselves (with their parents' help). They sell them at the local farmers' market and on their website. They have been accepting bitcoin for about two years, and have received orders from all over the world. A quick search on the bitcoin forums such as bitcointalk.org or on the bitcoin Reddit thread shows you just how respected the Bees Brothers are.
