Reid Hinkle, a seventh-grade biology teacher at Guntersville Middle School, sold honey from his hive in Cullman at the GMS parking on Wednesday. While it’s the second year for Hinkle to sell his straight-from-the-comb honey, this is the first time he has brought it to Guntersville.

Hinkle Farms in Cullman County began as a family endeavor, which is “more of a hobby than anything else,” according to Hinkle. The farm was made up of fruit trees, gardens and a vineyard, until a friend from Arkansas mentioned what a game-changer honeybees are. Hinkle’s mother said she would purchase everything to get started, if he would do all the work.
