ABOUT THE KEEPERS OF THE BEES & MEAD:
If you want to know about Rusty and Betsy East you have to think about love. An overwhelming love of God which guides every aspect of their lives. A passionate love for each other. A sustaining love for family. And a fulfilling love for country living.
Their love of God has taken them around the world in Christian service to places like Tanzania in East Africa, Honduras in Central America, Mexico, and various places around the United States. Rusty now pastors a small country church and they still go on short term mission trips.
Their love for each other has bound them together for an unending grand adventure for almost 25 years so far.
Love of family has given them the stable homefront that gives them the courage to venture to so many places in the world.
And love of country living has in the last few years led them back to the family farm. A simple lifestyle. Raising their own vegetables, picking wild berries and plums, planting pecan and apple trees, and tending their bees keep them connected to the land. Honey and mead are just a part of their country lifestyle.
