When he was just 10 years old, Carson was introduced to the art of beekeeping by a family friend. He has since worked with many prominent beekeepers around Northern California, and has owned and operated Carson and Bees for the past decade.
Carson and Bees has been growing mightily over the past two years, with about 240 hives housed at farms and wineries throughout inland Mendocino County. Carson’s wife Elizabeth helps run the company, and you can usually find one or both of them selling their wildflower honey at the Ukiah and Fort Bragg farmers markets. Mendocino County bees make exceptionally dark amber honey which is primarily comprised of vetch, star thistle, blackberry, mustard, and manzanita. All of Carson and Bees’ honey is raw and unfiltered.
Carson is also the volunteer project leader for the Mendocino county 4-H bee project, does consulting for individuals interested in learning the art of beekeeping, and is always happy to answer questions if you see him at the farmers market.
