168: How to Become a Beekeper with Jennifer Rohr

Jennifer Rohr is Originally from a hobby farm in Vancouver, Canada. She moved to Switzerland in 1998 with her husband, two children, and a strong entrepreneurial spirit. To deal with some unexpected reminders of life’s fragility, She went back to my agricultural roots (literally and figuratively) and began the transformation of our urban property into an organic farm and apiary, the foundations of Primrose Secret Garden.

Today, Jeniffer is at Swiss and works hard to maintain BioSuisse certification, both as a grower and beekeeper. When she’s not gardening, beekeeping, or handcrafting organic produce in our professional kitchen, you can find her sharing their product in outdoor markets.
