We here at Carson & Bees believe in supporting the community that supports us. We also needed to find something to do with all of the sunflower seeds our bees pollinated last year, so we thought up a sunflower seed fundraiser to support local school and community gardens.
Carson & Bees is proud to announce that our honey is now being carried by our favorite local grocer, the Westside Renaissance Market on Clay St in Ukiah.
This year we’ve grown quite a bit, which means we have more honey to go around. If you can’t make it to the “RenMar” (as we affectionately call it), you can also buy Carson & Bees honey at the following locations:
Pizza Etc in Redwood Valley
Hopper’s Corner Store in Potter Valley
Jaxon Keys Winery in Hopland
Happy Herb Shop in Ukiah (you can get our bee pollen there, too!)
