From the hurricane, sweetness
What an odyssey since Hurricane Michael for Oversteet’s Buddy Nachtsheim and his honeybees.
There was the recovery of Buddy’s hive, disjointed by Michael and nurtured back to health by Buddy, doing so while taking care of his father who has just lost his wife of more than 50 years.
The hive and bees survived and became something of a passion of faith for Buddy, producing what he would come to call Hurricane Honey.
His story was ultimately picked up by the Weather Channel and Buddy has mailed his honey as far as Colorado and witnessed with people from Panama City Beach to Gulf County.
At the urging of others he put the entire tale to paper, a book he now sells with his honey.
