Doug Hauke, CEO of Marshfield's Hauke Honey Corporation, takes viewers inside his state-of-the-art beekeeping facility. Hauke maintains large beekeeping operations in Wisconsin, California and Texas, and grows California almonds.


MARSHFIELD - "You have to have a love for the bug."

Those are Doug Hauke's words of advice for anyone who wants to get into beekeeping. The CEO of the Marshfield-based Hauke Honey Corporation has 3,000 colonies of bees in Wisconsin; the firm sells tens of thousands of pounds of honey to Miller Brewing Company and other brewers.

In this USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin video, Hauke speaks about beekeeping on an industrial scale and why his job has him traveling between Wisconsin, California and east Texas for six months of the year.
