The Millers have built their lives around vision, volunteering, and honey. “The whole family is a volunteer family, and Milt’s the leader of it. We are the worker bees,”said Peggy. Together, Milt and son Kyle Miller run the third-generation Wonderful Wyoming Honey business, along their “queen bees”–wives Peggy and Nicole.
In addition to operating Wonderful Wyoming Honey, Milt helped start Dubois Search and Rescue, served on the school board, and is a member of Mount Calvary Lutheran church. Peggy, a retired kindergarten and physical education teacher, was instrumental in opening the Boys & Girls Club of Dubois and served as the first Club Director and on the board for many years. Filled with energy and vision, she empowered girls by starting and coaching women’s sports in Dubois when Title IX was introduced.
Their son Kyle works in the family honey business and coaches boys’ basketball for Dubois High School, taking the team to the State Tournament for the third time this year. Kyle started an obstacle race to raise money for the Chance Phelps Foundation for wounded veterans.
An Advisory Council member and a special education teacher for Dubois schools, Kyle’s wife, Nicole, expanded the family business with Kyle by opening The Honey House Store, which impacts the local economy, draws tourists and provides education through a learning station with a live hive. She and Kyle have two children.
