We have some Big News: with mixed emotions, we are writing to let you know that we’re moving to Yolo County.
Carson was offered a job as a full-time beekeeper in Davis. We never planned on living outside of Mendocino County, but the opportunity to work for and learn from a large commercial beekeeping operation is too good to pass up. Our hope is to return to Ukiah in a few years and run Carson and Bees full time.
Mendocino County is an ideal place to keep bees: there is lots of good forage, minimal pesticide use, and tons of community support. But we both work outside jobs in addition to running our bee business, and if we ever want to scale up and run Carson and Bees full-time, we need to learn how to manage a bigger apiary. The best place to do that is in the Central Valley, and we are honored that our friends at Tauzer Apiaries are bringing Carson in to work with and learn from their operation.
Our hearts are excited and sad at the same time. Moving is never easy, but the load is softened knowing our home and community will be waiting for our return.
Thank you for your support as we embark on this professional adventure!
