    What about a section where visitors can browse or submit photos of their (I don't know much about bee products) bee hives, etc. I think a big deal on the web right now is sites that allow you to upload photos.

    that is a good idea, and i know most beekeepers are annoraks, but i think it would be alot of work, for something that maybe only a few people would be interested in. However some sort of content that people can add to is an idea that i can look in to further.

    it's kinda tricky because It feels to me like this is a site that someone would visit with a specific purpose/niche. for example, I don't know BEES WAX....HAHAHA no pun intended....*clears throat*...um..anyways, I don't know anything about honey or bees or hives, so the site, regardless of what you do to it, won't keep my attention.

    I would suggest doing a sort of competitive analysis on other sites about the same thing, figure out what they have, and find a way to either have more content, or easier to understand content. in a quick google search I found this:

    http://www.indianchild.com/bees.htm

    now, your design alone is a lot better than this, which I think will help you a lot, but simply browsing their content and finding out what else you can offer may be helpful.

    a shop would help.... you do say "Your one-stop shop for Quality Bee Products" - shop implies the ability to purchase products of some kind.

    Right now there's really no reason to visit your site for the first time, let alone a return visit. The only real content is about your products, which is to be expected by the domain name, but I can't buy them. So I can look at pictures and descriptions but that's it.
    There's not much point looking at pictures of stuff I can't have.

    There's really nothing to make me want to come back. Unless I really need a picture of a candle or a jar of honey.

    If I'm online looking for bee-related products, I'm going to go to a site that lets me buy them. Your product is not unique, so people will go elsewhere to get it.

    What exactly are you trying to achieve with your site? I mean, why do you want people to come to your site? Its obviously not a revenue stream so what is the site for? If it's about 'brand awareness' then you need to put some content in about your company/brand/product.

    Font changes OK for me in ff2 but I am not sure you need it.
    Holding the CTRL button and scrolling the mouse does the same job.

    I agree that you ought to think about having a shopping cart.
