Jimmy Carter Boyhood Farm
402 Old Plains Highway
Plains, GA 31780


August 22, 2015, is National Honey Bee Day, and the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site will be hosting programs at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Boyhood Farm located on Old Plains Highway. Recently, the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site added honey bee hives to the farm. In his book, "An Hour Before Daylight," President Carter states, "One important source of income was high-quality honey, which we sold either in the comb or centrifuged to extract the pure nectar." He also says, "Daddy maintained about two dozen hives, and we processed the honey, consumed what we needed for our family, and sold the rest."
