Craig Bell runs a sweet local business that employs about 150 million girls in South Carolina. Occasionally he gets out of state calls, generally from men, and transports some of his girls across state lines after receiving requests for his girls’ services. Rather than the lead to a seamy story, this is a wholesome and nutritious enterprise: Bell is the only professional commercial beekeeper in Kershaw County.
