Dr. Kreeger and his wife, Pamela, share their farm with several cats, deer, and groundhogs and are very interested in sustainable agricultural practices. Their agricultural interests lie in sustainable plant pollination, its vital importance to our survival, and the important role of insect pollinators…specifically honey bees. Dr. Kreeger is a North Carolina Certified Beekeeper and is a member, along with Pamela, of the Forsyth County Beekeepers Association and the North Carolina State Beekeepers Association. Their farm is honored to have been designated by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and the North Carolina State Fair as one of North Carolina’s Century Farms because of its continuous agricultural production by the same family for over one hundred years. Interestingly, there has been a large colony of feral honey bees living in the walls of an abandoned cabin on their farm for at least sixty years…thus the longstanding link of their farm with our precious and vital honey bees.
In his spare time, Dr. Kreeger serves as an instructor and as a member of the Representative Leadership Team for the Veterinary Information Network. This is a worldwide online community of almost 100,000 veterinarians who work together sharing knowledge to optimize the level of care provided to their patients.
