    darbus ir tai taip įaugo į kraują kad nors ir baigęs radiotechnikos mokslus visgi ateitį siejau tik su gamta ir bitėmis Vėliau krimtau bitininkystės mokslus ir su dideliu užsidegimu ėmiausi šio amato Iš kur atsirado šis pomėgis Iš giminaičio Rimkaus kuris žinomas ne tik vietinėse apylinkėse bet ir visoje Lietuvoje kaip puikus bitininkas Jis taip mokėdavo papasakoti apie bites ir jų priežiūrą kad viskas nuskambėdavo lyg pasaka ar graži daina todėl vien iš jo istorijų galėdavai pamilti šį amatą Kada įkūrėte savo verslą bityną Gal tai paveldėjote iš savo tėčio ar senelio 1990 m nusipirkau sodybą ir pradėjau lipdyti avilius Čia viskas yra ko reikia kūnui ir sielai laukinė gamta šviežias oras miškas laukai ir pievos Šiuo metu turiu 36 avilius Šiuo metu dažnai atvažiuoja mokinių kurie domisi bitininkystės amatu ir man nepaprastai džiugu jiems perduoti savo patirtį Medaus gaminimas Jums labiau darbas ar pomėgis hobis Kasdien būti gamtoje prižiūrėti bites jomis domėtis ir puoselėti tikra idilija todėl tai visada buvo hobis pomėgis mėgstamiausias užsiėmimas Juk ne kiekvienas gali būti bitininkas Turi būti ramus mėgstantis tvarką ir švarą nenervuotas Kiek laiko per dieną praleidžiate su bitėmis Oi net labai įvairiai Jeigu laiku viskas padaryta tai kasdien prie jų eiti nereikia Daugiau darbų būna pavasarį Sunkiausias momentas kai jos spiečia tada kartais tenka prie jų būti ir iki saulei leidžiantis Bet būnant gamtoje laiko neskaičiuoji kiek reikia tiek ir būni Kuo ypatingas Jūsų medus Čia jau siūlyčiau paragauti nes tikrai pajusite koks turi būti tikras medus Pas mus labai natūrali gamta aplinka niekas aplink neūkininkauja bitelės gali toli skraidyti ir parnešti daug gardaus medaus iš rąstų iš miškų bei pievų Turime nuolatinių lankytojų ir gerbėjų kurie mūsų medutį veža net į užsienį kaip lauktuves Koks Jūsų mėgstamiausias patiekalas su medumi Pats medų labai mėgstu galiu valgyti kasdien ir pagardinti daug patiekalų
