It is with great sadness that we make this announcement. On October 18th, 2021, Troy Leibengood, the mind behind Leibengood Family Apiaries, unexpectedly passed.
Our family wishes to continue Troy’s service to the beekeepers of Northwest Ohio by passing along the bee package season to John Clark of “Silly-Bee Apiaries”. From the beginning, John accompanied Troy on the trips to Georgia and knows every aspect of this area. These packages will come from the same producer in Georgia with the same quality as in the past. We are confident that John will be able to serve and educate our customers just as Troy did.
With the process of transitioning, the contact information on the package website will be Silly-Bees Apiaries’. Similarly, any package order information will go to John and not to us.
Thank you for supporting our family and Troy’s passion. Troy loved beekeeping, but also loved helping his customers with their own beekeeping ventures. We know Troy’s memory will live on in all of the lives he touched and the community he educated.
The Leibengood Family
