About Us

Techwood Farms is a Georgia based limited liability company formed to pick up where the late George Russell Painter had introduced his grandson Alan Painter and great grandson Will Painter to beekeeping in the late 1960's. We support strong right to farm laws.

And property tax conservation policies that encourage beekeeping at any level. To put it mildly, beekeeping has changed in the last few years than in the past 40 years combined. This makes our mission more important than ever -- "Blending Technology & Agriculture for a better life".

Queen Hatchery™
Pollen Agriculture ™
Microgreens Farming ™

Queen Hatchery ™

Honey bee queen raising is a highly specialized process.

We have made an investment to establish a queen rearing operation that will produce queen honey bees that are accustomed to our local weather.

Testing for hygienic behavior

A queen bee's "hygienic" refers to raising honey bee workers
that remove diseased bees, dead larvae & pupae from the hive.

Freezing a test area

This shows great signs of hygienic behavior
Test area has been cleared & new eggs are being placed.


Pollen Agriculture ™

  • Bee pollen is rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins, lipids and fatty acids, enzymes, carotenoids and bioflavonoids.
  • It has powerful antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties that strengthen the capillaries, reduce inflammation, stimulate the immune system and lower cholesterol levels naturally.
  • Health questions should always be discussed with your healthcare professional

Microgreens Farming ™

A microgreen is a young vegetable green that is used both as a visual and flavor component or ingredient primarily in fine dining restaurants.

Fine dining chefs use microgreens to enhance the attractiveness and taste of their dishes with their delicate textures and distinctive flavors. - Wikipedia


Slovenian hive

We have been following the work of Janko Bozic,
Professor at the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia for several years.

This may not look much now but after legal hurdles are cleared,
Techwood Farms will construct state of the art AZ honey bee hive observation house that will draw into Georgia's growing agritourism.

This will showcase to visting student groups how honey bees are important to our food security. But more importantly, this can demonstrate to special needs beekeeper who may be wheelchair bound or unable to lift 100 lb bee hive bodies how they can become apart of the beekeeping community.


Honey Locker ™

We will be field testing Honey Locker™  during the 2019 honey flow.


Honey Bee Swarm
Rescue Truck

It does not look like much (now).
But we are transforming this Ford F-150
into a honey bee rescue truck.

Honeybee swarms are resting temporarily
while they look for a new place to live.
