Cody and Judy O'Dell
at Smokey Ridge Apiaries.
For those of you who already know them, they're coming back to the market!
The first Saturday of each month, they will have honey crafts and
This family farm business is great example of the talent you'll see a this year's market.
Coley helped found the Maryville Farmers' Market and came weekly as a vendor for almost a decade. He and his wife, Judy, mainly work from home now. With over 30 years’ beekeeping experience, their home store keeps them busy at the apiary selling bees and beekeeping equipment among all their other creative endeavors.
Judy makes artisan candles, soaps and lotions from the honey Coley's bees produce. And of course, they sell a variety of honey. Wildflower honey is their best seller, but they also take hives to a field of Sourwood trees in the Smokies every year while the Sour Wood is in bloom. Honey connoisseurs pay dearly for this highly sought after honey. Judy makes an assortment of naturally flavored creamed honeys. All of this will be available at the Smokey Ridge Apiary Booth the first Saturday of the month this Maryville Farmers' Market season.
