Lincoln Sennett, a former chemical engineer, bought Swan's Honey from founder Ha
Lincoln Sennett, a former chemical engineer, bought Swan's Honey from founder Harold Swan, who ran the plant next to his home in Brewer. Last winter, Lincoln finished construction on a new plant in Albion and hopes next year to devote more time to his 400 hives. Harold Swan, 81, who lives in his childhood home in Brewer with his wife, Hilda, once had over 1,000 hives and trucked them south for the winter. Lincoln trucks bees to Florida and uses them to pollinate blueberry fields he owns in Machias, fields he worked as a child with his grandfather. Now, he, his wife, Karen, and twelve-year-old son, Mac, live in the old homestead. He rents out his bees because it's nearly impossible to survive as a honey producer in the U.S.
