The main purpose of my business is to be able to supply new apiarists with quality bees, equipment, and knowledge to begin their own hives. I believe my work can be split up into thirds: pollination, propagation, and production. I provide pollination services to farmers in the area while at the same time building up the health and numbers of my bees to sell them. From the bees I create many products like honey and beeswax from which I make things such as lip balm, lotion, or candles.
Shagbark Seed & Mill, a certified organic seed cleaning and flour milling facility that markets grains, dry beans, flours, chips, crackers and pasta–all grown in Ohio–proposes to expand its Heirloom Popcorn line to a bagged, ready-to-eat product, and market it as an Appalachian product, since the variety has been long grown in our region. We are seeking partners to assess the market, pioneering farmers from the Appalachian region to grow heirloom varieties of popcorn, and potentially investors into various aspects of the value chain including equipment.
Camp Joseph Badger Meadows (JBM) is a 235 acre church camp supported by 50+ churches of Eastminster Presbytery--a district of Presbyterian churches which includes churches in Akron, Barberton, Cuyahoga Falls, Kent, Warren, Youngstown, and Lisbon. While JBM has, at this point, no separate legal standing apart from the Presbytery, the camp's budget, operations, and programming are the responsibility of the camp committee, consisting of an approximately equal number of clergy and lay persons from the presbytery.

As an entrepreneur and budding businessman, I'm hoping to combine my passions and strengths by starting a business that will make prepared meals (breakfasts, sack lunches, entrees and sides for dinner) that customers can take home and eat with their family (or in the case of breakfast/lunch perhaps take to work!) The large portion of each meal would be locally sourced and bent towards the healthy eater.
