Jerry Logan, along with his wife, Jo, own and operate Honey Hill Farms located in Edmond.

The couple claims three sons, Mark, Barry and Chris, along with zillions of bees.

You have been: “Oklahoma Beekeeper of the Year in 2003 and President of the OK State Beekeepers' Association from 2004-2006.”

Former career before beekeeping: “A teacher at Millwood School.”

We can purchase your products at: “Stores mostly in OKC, but at four grocery stores in Edmond, two health food stores, two gourmet shops, feed supply houses and five different health food stores in Oklahoma City.”

What makes your regional honey so good: “I don’t know; I don’t have a thing to do with it. It’s what the bees collect.”

A famous person you kinda look like: “Gomer Pyle [of The Andy Griffith Show].”

Cook: “I don’t cook; I’ve got four wheels.”

Essential tool in your own kitchen: “My can opener.”

You’d never eat: “Squash.”

But love: “Sweet potatoes with honey on it. I have honey every day, even on my cereal in the morning . It is so nutritious and is such a good replacement for sugar.”

Personal motto: “Do your best.”

People don’t know: “There is nothing. I am an open book. Jo and I, we will have been married 49 years on the 31st of May.”

You met your wife: “On a blind date in Duncan.”

Die and come back as: “Myself.”

Where you like to eat: “Coolgreens and LaBaguette. After a recent heart attack, I stay away from fast food.”

What happens outside that makes you happy: “I like to see the flowers blooming, because I like to see the bees sitting on them.”

A real disaster: “When you pick up a hive and it comes apart and the bees just cover you.”

Plus: “One time I was pumping honey and forgot about it for a few minutes. Well, it overflowed on everything and it was a sticky mess.”

Good advice for using honey: “You can put it on burns or cuts as bacteria will not live in honey. It is really healthy.”
