Keith Seifert Jr
On any given day, Keith gets 20 to 30 bee stings. He confesses two things — you never get used to it and it hurts every time. The zing of the zap has not stopped Keith from his passion for bees that started when he bought his first hive at 16 years old. Keith, who started Sweet Bee Company in 2011, has been a beekeeper for 17 years and proudly serves as an apprentice-craftsman beekeeper at the University of Florida’s Master Beekeeper Program. Keith is a well-versed public speaker for beekeeping, the biology of the honeybee and understanding its fascinating behavior. Beyond bees, Keith enjoys spending time with his family and dogs, outdoor activities like fishing and skiing, all things Florida, and of course, UF football. Go Gators!
